Assistant Professor, Biological Sciences

B.Sc. (Hons.)-Microbiology, M.Sc.-Biotechnology, Ph.D.-Microbiology

Areas of Specialisation

Molecular Biology

Academic/Research Experience:

Dr. Harinder has been working with Sunandan Divatia School of Science from June 2016 and has over 15 years of research/teaching experience, which includes over 8 years post Ph. D work. He obtained his Ph.D. in Microbiology from Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, India, where he worked in the area of cyanobacterial stress response. He worked in a private company as Research Scientist immediately after his Ph.D. Later, he worked as postdoctoral researcher at Korean Atomic Energy Research Institute, South Korea and then at IIT Bombay, Mumbai, India. He had also worked as an Assistant Professor in an undergraduate college before his Ph.D. His major active research areas are bacterial stress biology and enzyme engineering.

Area of Research

Stress biology, Enzyme engineering, Oral Cancer

Current Academic and non-Academic Activities

• Teaching Molecular Biology, Bioinformatics, Biochemistry and Microbiology to B.Sc., M.Sc., Integrated M.Sc.-Ph.D. and Ph.D. students of Biomedical and Biological Sciences.
