I work on understanding the evolutionary arms race between viruses and host immune responses. My work mainly focuses on understanding the dengue virus diversity and evolution in India and how it is shaped by the presence of a large amount of cross-reactive antibodies at the population level.

I am also working on studying the long-term humoral immune response to SARS-CoV-2 to identify unreported infection events.

Apart from research, I enjoy trekking and sketching. I am a DIY enthusiast and like to build things.
