Srinivas obtained a Bachelors in Technology in Industrial Biotechnology at Anna University, Chennai, India in 2006. He then went on to UNC Chapel Hill, where he conducted his graduate research from 2006 to 2011 in the lab of Prof. Nikolay Dokholyan in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics. He worked on the recognition of Platinum-DNA adducts by HMB1a and on modeling the calcium ion channel, Ryanodine receptor, among other projects. He became interested in nucleosome structure and dynamics towards the end of his PhD and headed to Steve Henikoff’s lab at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center for a postdoc from 2012 onwards. In Steve’s lab, he has been working on developing new computational and experimental methods to map nucleosome structure and dynamics in vivo during active processes like replication, transcription, and chromatin remodeling. He started as an Assistant Professor in University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Campus in January 2018.
