Areas of Expertise
I serve as the Director of Licensing and Strategic Alliances at OTL, working with Brandeis researchers to facilitate the commercialization of Brandeis technologies and pursue strategic industry partnerships. My work involves IP management, business development, and helping Brandeis researchers in identifying valuable technologies and their commercialization path.
I got my undergraduate degree in Biochemistry and Master’s in Biotechnology from India. My PhD work involved working on the pathogenesis of RNA viruses and subsequent postdoctoral research was focused on HIV-1 pathogenesis. I earned my MBA degree while working at university of Massachusetts Lowell.
I have spent 12 years working in the technology commercialization area and love the entrepreneurship ecosystem that we support in the universities. It’s also very exciting in working with the new innovations coming out of the academic research.
