Assistant Professor


Dr. Neha A. Shintre is working as Assistant Professor in the School of Biology, MIT-World Peace University. She has received her Ph.D. in Microbiology from Savitribai Phule Pune University. Her doctoral study was focused on isolation of intertidal actinobacteria and exploring their potential for production of enzyme inhibitors. Before joining Ph.D., she has worked on the marine component of Maharashtra Gene Bank Program at IISER, Pune, where her work focused on ecological studies of marine invertebrates and their symbiotic bacteria. She has also worked as a consultant to the RUSA team at SPPU, for a project related to woody species diversity of Western Ghats of India. Her interests in science broadly lie in ecological interactions at organismal and chemical levels. Alongside research, she has over 9 years of experience in teaching at graduate and post-graduate levels.
