Even a tiny creature such as an ant can move thousands of kilometers ahead if it keeps on walking consistently. But if an Eagle doesn’t move from its place then it can’t move even a foot ahead!

My PhD at Medizinische Hochschule Hannover, was one of the most exciting phases of my life, when I developed my love and passion for understanding the mysterious and fascinating world of cardiovascular science. I fell in love with those beating cardiomyocytes and have never got tired of watching them under the microscope. While studying the molecular mechanisms governing the process of myocardial remodeling, I gained the expertise in handling several mouse and cell culture models. Afterwards, I joined Prof. Peter Rehling’s group at Universitätsmedizin Göttingen as a postdoctoral research scientist to broaden my horizons. I continued my zest to unveil various metabolic regulations underlying cardiac abnormalities. During this time I was also successful in generating CRISPR-Cas mediated patient mutation mouse models of cardiac diseases.

Other than science, I enjoy experimenting in my second laboratory at home -my kitchen. Likewise, I think with the right set of weapons (my brushes, colors, imagination and music), I can conquer the world, but will still loose to my “mini me”: my lovely daughter.
