I am looking to tutor at a middle school or high school level in chemistry and biology. My approach involves creating an engaging learning environment through creativity, patience and determination. I hope to develop an interest for science in students.
I am a recent graduate with dual Bachelor's degree in biochemistry and chemistry. I have prior college level tutoring experience. I am looking forward to extending my scientific education at a middle school or high school level by providing engaging lessons.

Independent Research, Gerace Research Institute, San Salvador Island, Bahamas
Studied the differences between the nematocysts found in bleached corals as compared to unbleached corals under the guidance of Prof. Barbara Christie Pope and Prof. Craig Tepper
Isolated DNA from coral samples of the genus Millepora to identify the presence of its symbiotic partner zooxanthellae of the genus Symbiodinium
Observed nematocyst morphology using scanning electron microscopy (SEM)
Cornell Summer Research Institute, Cornell College, Mount Vernon, Iowa, United States of America
Student Researcher, May 2019- July 2019
Conducted research concerning alternative methods for carbon dioxide capture using room temperature ionic liquids and functionalised graphene through a web based program with Prof. Craig Teague
Researched the interaction of the anion counterpart in ionic liquids with the Lewis acid acting carbon of the carbon dioxide molecule
Reviewed concepts and literature regarding the principles of computational chemistry extensively
Presented a poster based on the research at the Midwestern Undergraduate Computational Chemistry Consortium 2019
Department of Neurology, P. D. Hinduja National Hospital and Medical Research Centre, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
Medical Observer, May 2018- August 2018
Assisted in medical research projects related to the loss of olfaction due to Parkinson’s Disease and the onset of physical imbalance in Parkinsonian patients
Attended and assisted in consultations in Out Patient Department with Dr. Charulata Sankhla
Attended rotations in the Indoor Patient Department, Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Emergency Room (ER)
Department of Neurosurgery, Bombay Hospital and Medical Research Centre, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
Medical Observer, May 2018- August 2018
Observed neurosurgical procedures
Attended a practical seminar for Minimal Access Surgery
Conducted research analysing and sequencing a mutated version of the hilA gene in Salmonella
Isolated the hilA gene, which transcribes the virulence feature of Salmonella, from an E.coli plasmid
Sequenced the gene to identify the randomly inserted mutations which had inactivated the virulence factor
Studied the concepts of Mendelian and molecular genetics in detail
Advanced Organic Chemistry Lab
Designed an independent research project involving the synthesis of new compounds by modifying the existing molecular structure of ibuprofen
Mainly focused on pharmacology concepts involving the structure, function, discovery, receptors and metabolism of drugs
Additionally studied the biophysics of cell membranes with a focus on the electrophysiology of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor
Cellular and Molecular Biology Lab
Determined the concentration of rubisco, which is an enzyme involved in the photosynthetic fixation of atmospheric carbon dioxide, in the chloroplast
Isolated and analysed chloroplast DNA to determine the number of copies of the gene encoding the large subunit of rubisco
English, Hindi and Marathi (fluent in all)
