  1. Molecular Connection Pvt. Ltd. Bangalore (July 2015-March 2017): Designation Scientific Analyst. Area of work was to build database (methods and protocols) from the respective research papers.
  2. CSIR-NIO Goa (April 2017-October 2019): Designation Project Assistant. Area of specialization- Taxonomic studies of zooplankton, Total Bacterial Count, chlorophyll determination, lipid extraction from seawater sample (phytoplankton), Primary Productivity-14C radioisotope experiment and Bacterial Productivity-thymidine experiment on Cruises (SSD_40, SSD_44 and SSD_55). I was also part of various offshore, coastal and deep sea projects.
  3. Current-PhD studies: I am enrolled into my doctorate studies since October 2019 and my thesis topic is “Vegetable free of human pathogenic microorganisms (HPMO’s)”. My master thesis entitled “Comparatative analysis of fecal indicator bacteria in water and zooplankton in Zuari Estuary” was short but fruitful dissertation because it consisted of studying the origin, transmission and impact of these fecal bacteria in seawater and zooplanktons. Being a microbiologist, this study motivated me to learn more on the potential threat and benefits of bad and good microorganisms and encouraged me to carry out my PhD thesis in the field of microbiology.
