I received my B.Sc degree with honors in Zoology from Gauhati University and M.Sc. degree in Life Science (Zoology) from National Institute of Technology Rourkela. I am honored with the prestigious Prime Minister's Research Fellowship since July 2020 and currently pursuing my Ph.D. degree in Interdisciplinary areas of Science and Engineering at the School of Energy Science and Engineering, IIT Guwahati under the supervision of Prof. Vaibhav V. Goud. My current research work is on Biofuel production from biodegradable wastes materials and extraction of bioactive compounds from the non-edible parts of plant material. I have successfully been able to extract carotenoids from fruit by-products which are usually discarded.

My research interests are
1.    Extraction of bioactive compounds from plant material.
2.    Bioethanol production.

I wish to share my knowledge and utilize skills and experience with students from technical institutes, biorefineries, and companies working in this field.
