Hello, Ni Hao, Namaste

I am Kshitij, which literally means Horizon and this is what my aim is. I love to make friends and do cherish the friendship I have.

Some Serious talk, I graduated with TIGP Bioinformatics-PhD from Academia Sinica in July 2020. My research focuses on the aspects of Meta-genomics and comparative genomics of marine and freshwater ecosystems
