Research Interests

​My interest is focused on microbial diversity, metagenomics and microbiome. Studying microbial interaction amongst each other and the environment from big data prospective is my goal. Looking for interesting challenges that can help in elucidating some of the microbial actions in interactive digital measurable means.  Studying microbial biofilms in oil downstream facilities.  More to microbial studies, I am interested in marine and ecosystem in big data prospective of analytics tools that can improve our understanding and image of the current environmental changes.
