Social Media, European Academic Outreach at Sci-ROI
I am a structural virologist interested in decoding host-pathogen interactions during viral infections using molecular virology, biophysical and computational methods. The focus of my research program is to accelerate structure-based anti-viral therapeutics design (antibody therapeutics and vaccines) by deciphering virus neutralization mechanisms at the molecular level. I was introduced to Sci-ROI via an exceptionally informative “cryo-EM in India” webinar organized in December 2020. Sci-ROI’s vision of connecting STEM researchers in the U.S. and Indian academia (and industry) attracted me to volunteer for the organization. I will primarily focus on Sci-ROI’s academic outreach in Europe (and other countries) in addition to managing a few of Sci-ROI’s social media outlets. I look forward to my journey with an amazing team of Sci-ROI volunteers.
