Areas of Interest

Ajay graduated from Miami University of Ohio in December 2016 with degrees in Biochemistry and Mathematics/Statistics. His undergraduate research primarily focused on 5-methylcytosine mediated silencing in A. thaliana through biochemical and bioinformatics techniques. In graduate school, he continued his interests in epigenetics in the Ragunathan lab, where he now studies gene regulation by small RNA dependent silencing pathways in fission yeast.
