Biography:

I did my Bachelors and Masters of Technology in Biotechnology with a focus on plant tissue culture and plant genomics. Following this, I interned in Novozymes, an enzymes development company and also worked in healthcare market research for a year. However, my interest in the ethics of biological research directed me towards the Erasmus Mundus Master of Bioethics in 2015. During this course I was introduced to the prevailing issues of biomedical ethics and developed a curiosity in the dual use and/or misuse of technology. I am now pursuing my PhD in the ethical aspects of a gene regulation knowledge commons.

NTNU Health DrugLogics:
My research focusses on identifying the ethical dilemmas arising from the practices of adding and extracting from the Knowledge Commons; understanding how these ethical issues could effect its sustainability, eventually resulting in a Tragedy – of the Commons or the Anticommons; and studying the impact a responsible and effective governance structure can have on addressing such dilemmas and hence, ensuring a sustainable and robust system for knowledge management.
