Hi! I am Babu Raman from India. I am a graduate with a master’s degree in Biotechnology and Biochemical Engineering from IIT Kharagpur, India. I was working as a project assistant for 1.5 years under the guidance of Dr Palani Murugan at CCMB, India. Now, I started my adventurous phase (doctoral study) under the guidance of Dr Fulvio Reggiori at the UMCG, Groningen, The Netherlands. I want to understand the regulation of phosphorylation/dephosphorylation mechanism in autophagy using yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) as a model organism. Apart from doing research, I love to spend time playing badminton, basketball and football. Also, I am a stargazer and like to explorer natural scenery.
