I am passionate about doing research, particularly in the fields of Cancer Biology, Molecular Oncology, and immuno-oncology. Specific interest on circulating tumour cells using molecular approaches as well as Immunocytochemistry. Currently I am looking at how our body’s immune system response to circulating tumour cells, are the immune system and circulating tumour cells: friends or foe?

I am highly motivated to perform my best since I enjoy what I do. This drive inspired me to push myself every day and learn new skills that helped me to do better work. I am ambitious and driven. I thrive on challenge and constantly set goals for myself, so that I have something to aim towards.

In future, I am willing to continue my research developing my skills in this related field such as a Biotech or Pharmaceutical or in a Research Institute.
