I was born in Kerala, India and earned my M.D. from Kottayam Medical College-Mahatma Gandhi University. In 2008, I moved to the U.S. and joined UT Southwestern as a researcher in pulmonology and critical care. I then took a position with Dr. Hodics' lab in 2010.

I feel privileged to be part of a great team and I hope to make all of our challenging projects state of the art. After work, I enjoy time with family and following cricket and audiosancto series.
