Personal profile

Research Biography

I have got Ph.D. in Biophysics. However, I was always interested in Bio-Statistics. I was awarded Muskie Fellowship in 1999 and had an opportunity to earn Master's in Public Health (MPH) at State University of New York (SUNY, NY) and work as a Postdoctoral Scientist at the New York State Department of Health, Wadsworth Laboratories.

In 2001, I was appointed as postdoctoral research scientist and later on as Senior Research Officer at Hanson Cancer Research Institute (SA Pathology, Division of Human Immunology, Centre for Cancer Biology (CCB)) where I worked till the end of 2009 investigating potential therapeutic targets against mammary and gastrointestinal cancers.

In 2010, I was awarded CME Kelly Cancer Research Fellowship at Flinders University and joined Professor David Watson oesophageal cancer research laboratory. Working at Flinders Department of Surgery, I aimed to address the role of oestrogen reeptor modulators in regulation of oesophageal cancer cell growth.The project was supported by SAHMRI (Beat The Cancer program).

My ongoing research interest belongs to the field of cancer cell biology. I am interested to investigate the role of inflammation and steroid hormone signalling in cancer development and progression. During last 7 years I was and is actively involved in Health Science teaching at the College of Nursing. My current research projects are linked to database mining/analysis of the role of anti-inflammatory drugs, natural antioxidants, and diet in cancer prevention, treatment, and health promotion.
