Medhavi Vishwakarma

Assistant Professor

Trained as a Bioengineer, I am interested in studying biosystems in a multidisciplinary framework. In the lab, we combine tools of applied cell biology with concepts of soft matter physics and computational tools to unravel interesting phenomena in biological systems. Outside lab, I enjoy playing badminton and taking long walks in the woods. If you are interested in joining us, or looking for a collaboration, or just want to have a chat about research, please get in touch.

People in a conference room

Sindhu M.

PhD Student

Hi, I completed an Intl MSc(Hons) in Biological Sciences from BITS-Pilani (2017-2021) and have joined the EMBRG as a PhD student in August 2021. My research interest lies in cell biology broadly, and I will be working on Epithelial Defense Against Cancer. I also enjoy running, chess, poetry and reading.


Amrapali Datta

PhD Student


I joined the EMBRG in Jan 2022, after completing my master’s in biotechnology from St. Xavier’s College, Kolkata. I am passionate about oncology and shall be exploring how ageing influences epithelial defence against cancer (EDAC). My decision to join this lab as a Ph.D student stems from my career goal of becoming an independent investigator in the field of translational cancer research. Outside lab, I enjoy swimming, dancing and reading.
