Avilash gave up a comfortable desk job to challenge himself with a less comfortable desk (and Science!). When he isn’t out exploring Melbourne’s culinary culture, you can find Avilash investigating the epigenetic networks mediating plant thermal responses.

Sureshkumar Malluppatti Balasubramanian @ Suresh chooses to believe that the group members take him seriously and keep suggesting things, while others listen with a clear confidence that he won’t remember it the next time.

Sridevi completed her PhD from Detlef Weigel’s lab in Germany and is interested in understanding the role of alternative splicing and epigenetic silencing plants.

Shilpi joined the lab in 2018 to do a PhD. Shilpi worked for Department of Biotechnology, India before joining here and knows a thing or two about research funding too!
