What does being recognized as a Presidential Trainee mean to you?
It’s a prestigious award and as an aspiring clinical pharmacologist, I feel honored to be recognized in the company of clinical pharmacologists and pharmacometricians!
What professional accomplishment are you most proud of?
I think being recognized as a Presidential Trainee is quite an accomplishment and I am so proud that I was included among them this year.
How do you keep focused and motivated?
I have a positive mindset and attitude toward my work. I would make any task a target and would work diligently to achieve it. The motivation is to always learn something out of anything I do.
What was your childhood dream job?
As a kid, I always wanted to become a scientist. I grew up watching “Beakman’s World” and was always fascinated to learn various experiments and their mechanisms. Growing up, I would fall ill quite frequently and always had to take some antibiotics, antipyretics, antiemetics, etc. During those times, I developed a keen interest in how these medicines work. That’s the reason I chose pharmaceutical research as my profession.
When you aren’t working, how do you spend your free time?
In my leisure, I spend time working out, playing guitar, hanging out with friends, going on road trips, etc.
