PhD Students


Aditya Sanjay Malwe, PhD Student
I joined the lab in January 2019 as a PhD student after completing my MSc in Microbiology from The Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda. My research experience is primarily in experimental microbiology having worked on Quorum Quenching Actinobacteria during my MSc. But here I am interested in combining experimental as well as computational approaches for metagenomic analysis. I play table tennis, i like to read and travel a lot.


Sudhir Kumar, PhD Student
I joined Metagenomics and Systems Biology Laboratory in August 2019 after my M.Sc. in Biotechnology from University of Allahabad. I have worked on Physiological and Biochemical effects of heavy metal stress on Cyanobacteria and molecular marker based genotyping. Here I will be involved in sequencing and analysis of Eukaryotic genomes. I am interested in wildlife conservation and ecology. I like reading and listening to songs.


Deepika Pateriya, PhD Student
I joined MetaBioSys lab in August 2020 as a PhD student after completing my M.Sc in Zoology (Majoring in Molecular and Human Genetics) from Banaras Hindu University. My previous work experience is primarily in experimental biology having worked with mouse and fly models. Currently, I am involved in understanding the human microbiome using computational and experimental approches. When I am not busy in lab, I enjoy playing Basketball, Volleyball, singing and writing poetry.


Manohar Singh Bisht, PhD Student
I joined the lab in August 2021 as a PhD student after completing my Master's from the Department of Botany, University of Delhi, where I explored sewage microbial community structure data. Currently, my area of research is to analyse metagenomic and genomic data by employing computational appraoches. Besides that, I love to read and explore new places.


Mitali Singh, PhD Student
I joined the MetaBioSys lab in August 2021 and here I'll be studying skin and gut microbiome. I did my bachelor's and master's in Zoology from Banaras Hindu University. During my Master's dissertation work, I studied insect immunity and their cancer therapeutic values. Besides science, I am interested in painting, photography and food.


Usha Longwani, PhD Student
I joined MetaBioSys lab in August 2022 as a doctoral student. I have completed my M.Sc. (2022) in Forensic Science from National Institute of Criminology and Forensic Science, Delhi. I am working on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning approaches for analysing and understanding microbiome. I like to dance, play badminton and watch movies.


Martin Abraham Puthumana, PhD Student
I joined MetaBioSys lab in January 2024 as Phd Scholar. I completed my M.Sc. Botany from St. Berchmans College (Autonomous) affiliated to Mahatma Gandhi University, Kerala. Currently my area of research is genomic data analysis using machine learning approaches. Apart from my academia, I am interested in listening to music and watching movies and sports. I enjoy playing basketball.



BS-MS Students

Anjli Tanwar, BS-MS Student
I joined the MetaBioSys lab in May 2023 for my MS thesis because of my interest in computational biology. Currently, I am working on the human gut microbiome. During my leisure hours, I enjoy travelling, watching Korean dramas and listening to music.


Isha Shahare, BS-MS Student
I joined the MetaBioSys lab in June 2023 for my MS thesis, driven by my interest in computational biology and microbiology. Currently, I am working on human gut microbiome by using computational approaches. In my free time, I enjoy dancing and listening to music.


Swastika, M.Sc. Student
I was fascinated about the MetaBioSys lab before joining for Msc thesis as i had interest in culturing and indentifying various microbes . This lab has made me to understand more about gene sequencing and metagenomics. I joined MetaBioSys lab on June 2023 for my thesis. Currently I'm working on human gut microbiome.
