I am third year Undergraduate student at IIT Kanpur with an interest in Single Molecular Biophysics, Super-resolution Microscopy, Bionics (Human Augmentations) and Deep Learning. Currently working on particle tracking in the context of molecular trafficking and automated single-particle tracking using Deep Learning.


Projects

Single Particle Trajectory Analysis of Lysosomes in Live Cells

Mentor: Prof. Nitin Mohan

Designed a MATLAB program for tracking the real-time intracellular movement of Lysosomes inside the cells. Analysed the transport parameters to determine whether it is confined, anomalous or normal diffusion or active transport. Used real-time STROM microscope imaging data to perform the mean squared displacement analysis and detect the confined areas and split trajectories. Use of the neural network to analyze and correctly predict the missing frames in the trajectory of the lysosome tracking trajectories.

Selfish Vs Altruistic Behavior in Human Society

Mentor: Dr. Pradip Swarnakar

Performed an analysis of the behaviour of human beings to establish an individual's identity as selfish or altruistic. Analyzed and reviewed more than 10 research papers to design a customized criterion for determining selfish and altruistic behaviour. Collected all the individual responses throughout the campus community and determined the altruistic factor (Altruism, a) for the campus community. Designing a quantitative model using game theory simulations to foresee the future of society as which type of individuals wins the race of long-term existence.
