Biography

I work in the area of Environmental Biotechnology and graduated and post graduated from Panjab University, Chandigarh. I did my Ph.D. in Biotechnology as CSIR Fellow from Thapar University, Patiala. I had my post doctoral from South Dakota School of Mines, USA. Presently I am working as Associate Professor in the Department of Biotechnology and Bioinformatics, Jaypee University of Information Technology, Waknaghat, Solan. My research work is in the area of bioleaching of precious metals like gold, silver from e-waste and assessing the impact assessment of e-waste on human health and environment. We are also actively involved in screening and application of thermostable enzymes from natural habitats. I am involved in training, education and promote technology extension in the area of solid waste management among students and society.
