About me

Hello! I am Chandra Mani Kafle, and I am a Ph.D. candidate at Miami University, pursuing a degree in microbiology. My current research focuses on understanding how some of the viral proteins regulate cell cycle of the host during infection and cancer development. Apart from my research, I teach a microbiology lab course designed for microbiology-major and non-major students.

In my academic journey so far, I have had the privilege of participating in several scientific conferences, meetings, and symposiums, where I enjoyed opportunities to communicate my research to broader audiences. 

When I am not at my lab doing or thinking about my experiments for my research,  I like to experiment with the aperture and shutter speed on my camera, write some science in lay terms (for magazines or newspapers), and to hike in nature.
