My project:

“Effect of TM on the microbial community structure and activity of anaerobic digesters”


I am Kris, originally from Mumbai, India. I obtained my B.Sc & M.Sc in Biotechnology from Mumbai’s most historically notable colleges namely Wilson College and St Xavier’s College(Autonomous). Through study & dissertation on Lotus microbiomes at DBT-National Center for Microbial Resource, NCCS, Pune & work on Stony coral microbes and pathogenesis at CSIR-National Institute of Oceanography, Goa. I have come to appreciate the eccentricity & distinctiveness of microbial communities in the environment. M2ex ITN will let me delve deeper into AD microbiomes and study their long term performance under TE doses. Outside of work, I volunteer at my friends initiative The Science Cafe (, cook a hearty meal and explore hidden gems of a new city
