I was very lucky to find exceptional friends and mentors early in my career. My Ph.D. thesis described the development of plant-based metabolomics for diagnosing diseases in plants using mass spectrometry-based techniques (GCxGC-MS and LC-MS), under the mentorship of Prof. Fabio Augusto. Later on, I spend some time as a visiting scholar to research on ionic liquid chemistry under the guidance of Prof. Jared Anderson. For a brief period, I also worked with Prof. Ronei Poppi to model high-order chromatographic data using chemometric tools.
