Educational Background

  • (degree in progress) M.S., Biology, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Indiana, PA
  • 2012, B.S., Pharmacy, Purbanchal University, Kathmandu, Nepal


I developed an unusual interest in Pharmacology during my undergraduate studies in pharmacy. A 5+ years’ work experience as a hospital pharmacist escalated my interest towards pharmacology, especially neuropharmacology. As a graduate student at IUP, I worked in stem cells and kidney regeneration using zebrafish as a model organism. I believe that the drugs are the cornerstone of modern therapeutics and wish to work in neurological diseases with an ultimate goal of increasing health span rather than just life span.
