I graduated from AU, India with a Master's degree in Biotechnology. I came to EWU in Winter 2011 to continue my education. I was helping Dr. Bhuta in teaching Microbiology and Molecular biology labs. My graduate work is focused on identification and characterization of drug resistant bacteria and plasmids in biosolids. I chose this research because all over the states people are using biosolids as a fertilizer without knowing their health effects. I have identified bacteria that were resistant to two or more drugs tested. These bacteria need be tested further for their potential in transfer of drug resistance genes to others.
