He obtained B.Sc in biology, Physics and chemistry from Allahabad University and M.Sc in biochemistry from Dr. R.M.L. Avadh University in India. He completed Ph.D from Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences at Lucknow, India. He began his postdoctoral training determining the role of natural compounds in cancer chemoprevention at University of Pittsburgh at Pittsburgh, PA and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at Amarillo, TX. His second postdoctoral work at Indiana University was focused on investigating the impact of various pro-oxidative stressors in the pathogenesis of cutaneous immunity and non-melanoma skin cancer. He began his independent research career as an Assistant Professor at Indiana University, Indianapolis and currently he is employed at Wright State University at Dayton, OH. His long term research goal is to understand the mechanisms of immunomodulatory effects of environmental and therapeutic pro-oxidative stressors in cancer growth and cancer therapeutic responses
