Hello- I have completed my Master's degree in Chemistry from Kuvempu University, Shimoga, Karnataka in 2005 and directly joined Biocon Ltd through campus interview where I worked for 8 years. While working, I registered for Ph.D. in Organic chemistry from Kuvempu University under the guidance of Dr. Basavarj Padmashali. During my Ph.D., I have worked on “DEVELOPMENT OF NOVEL INDOLIZINE DERIVATIVES AS PHARMACEUTICAL LEADS”. My research work is published in journals like Science Advances, Nature, Bentham Science, Chemical Biology and Drug design, RSC, Tetrahedron letters, Heterocyclic letters, Asian journal of chemistry, etc. Some of my synthesized compounds are also patented with National and International Patent Offices. In Dr. Praveen’s lab, my research work is focused on synthesis of small organic compounds for biological applications.
