Adarsh obtained his Bachelor of Science Education (B.S.Ed.) dual degree in Chemistry and Biology with gold medal from Regional Institute of Education-Mysore (India), Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Microbiology with gold medal from University of Madras (India) and joined Nagaraju’s lab at Centre for DNA Fingerprinting and Diagnostics (CDFD)-India in 2008 to study Insect Molecular Biology and Protein Chemistry. In 2014, Adarsh joined Tatineni’s lab at University of Nebraska-Lincoln (USA) to study Plant Virology, Plant Pathology and Omics, and obtained Ph.D. (Class of 2018). Currently, Adarsh is postdoctoral scientist in Myles’ lab at Texas A&M University, studying molecular interactions of mosquito-borne human viruses, and antiviral small RNA pathways in mosquitoes. Outside work, Adarsh won awards and accolades for his photography, painting and singing.
