Starting with the most recent certifications, I earned my Certified Digital Marketing Masters (CDMM) from Digital Vidya, one of India’s largest and most prestigious Digital Marketing training companies. I was introduced to the world of digital marketing by a friend about two years back and I have been learning the tricks of the trade ever since. My interest in the field grew and in the summers of 2016 I decided to get the best certification and further my career in digital marketing. I am also google AdWords Video Certified and AdWords Shopping Certified.
I have also been awarded the coveted Master of Science (MS) degree in Molecular Biology from the University of Skovde in Sweden, having spent a year and a half on-campus studying Genetic Engineering, Immunology, Applied Biotechnology and Protein Biochemistry. This thoroughly research-based program gave me rich exposure to latest discoveries, research techniques and their applications in the field Molecular Biology. The entire year was packed with seminars, presentations, workshops, laboratory assignments, and group discussions on a range of topics that furthered by knowledge and understanding of this exciting field of Science. Taught entirely in English, the MS program was dotted with regular evaluations on which I achieved high scores.
The highlight of the program was a 6-month-long project on Aire: Its Contribution in the Development of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. This is an emerging area of research in Immunology with plenty of scope for new discoveries. At the world-class research facility in the University of Skovde, I got an excellent opportunity to optimize the latest techniques for observing expression patterns and mutations in Aire gene. I continued as a research student at the University of Skovde for another two years which included three projects before I returned to India.
Prior to the international research exposure in Sweden, I earned a Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree in Biotechnology from SRM University in Chennai, India. SRM University is among the top private universities in India, highly recognized by the government and the industry for its programs in the field of Science. A wonderful mix of theory and research, the two-year-program helped me gain a deep insight into Biochemistry, Genetics, Animal and Plant Biotechnology, Microbiology, and Immunology. While in the university, I was part of the Sports Club and played regular intra-university matches in cricket and badminton. Also, a key member of the Journals Club, I participated in debates on latest research papers in the field of Science. I also had the great opportunity of attending a training program in sophisticated laboratory techniques at the Central Drug Research Institute (CDRI), a highly-reputed government-owned research facility in India.
