I have published 30 manuscripts and presented my research work at six different places worldwide. My publications have been cited over 605 times as Google scholar citations. Also, I am an active reviewer of multiple international peer-review journals [(Scientific Reports and Scientific Data- Nature publishing group (NPG), Antioxidants journal, Brain Science, Biology Journal, and Journal of Biomolecular structure and dynamics and an active member of the Society on Neuroimmune Pharmacology (SNIP) and International Society of Neuro-Virology (ISNV). Also, I got the first prize for a poster presentation on my research work at the SNIP meeting, Philadelphia-USA.
