I am a PhD in Toxicology (Neuroscience and Pharmacology) by training, currently working on Traumatic Brain Injury induced neuroinflammation. Heterogenous nature of TBI attracts our attention towards it and encourages us to elucidate the mechanism behind TBI-induced inflammation and subsequent injury progression.

Research Interests

My interest lies in mechanistic aspects of TBI and consecutive inflammation. TBI is heterogenous in its etiology, thus present a big challenge infront of us. Timely, reduction of imflammation is the key to recovery from TBI. Our focus is to enhance the endogenous recovery processes so that injury can be reduced.
