Dr. Ameya Sinha

Graduate Student

Originally from Bombay, Ameya graduated from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore with a B.Eng in Bioengineering. Having previously worked on the mechanobiology of red blood cells, he transitioned to working with Plasmodium parasites under the collaborative supervision of Peter Dedon at MIT and Peter Preiser at NTU. When not holed up in the mass spectrometry room or next to the coffee machine, he can be found meandering through the city looking for the best food that Singapore has to offer.

Ameya’s research at AMR-IRG revolves around deciphering the Plasmodium epitranscriptome as a mechanism of translational control. Leveraging the mass spectrometer as an omnipotent tool, he aims to provide a glimpse of the DNA, RNA and the proteome of the Plasmodium falciparum parasite at a systems-level.
