I was born and raised in Srikakulam district of Andhra Pradesh, India. I completed my early education from sirkakulam, graduted in B.Sc. Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biotechnology from TSR and TBK degree college, Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh. Studied M.Sc Organic Chemistry in Sri Venkateswara University college of sciences, Sri Venkateswara University, Tirupati. Then moved to IIT Madras for Ph.D programe under supervision of Dr. Mahiuddin Baidya. My research interest is developing novel synthetic methodologies in the field of Organocatalysis, Asymmetric Synthesis and Nitroso Chemistry.
