PhD Student

Kumar is an engineer by training, with a strong interest in interdisciplinary studies, combining different field of science such as biophysics, microbiology and molecular biology. Kumar’s training comprises various microscopic platforms such as scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM) and also on optical microscopes (CLSM and TIRF). In SCELSE, Kumar developed a high-throughput immunofluorescent technique for screening subcellular localisation patterns of virulence proteins in bacteria. He is currently involved in developing state-of-the-art super resolution imaging platforms for studying dynamics of molecules in cells and in biofilms.
