Isha Dey is a research scientist Thermo Fisher Scientific. She earned her bachelor's and master's degrees in microbiology and biochemistry from St. Xavier’s College and University of Calcutta in India, respectively, after which she moved to the United States to pursue a Ph.D. in physiology from Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. Her thesis focused on understanding the regulation of fluid transport in the intestine. Her association with ASBMB Today began in 2016. Besides sciencing, she likes to do embroidery, listen to music (The Beatles is amongst her all-time favorites), try out all kinds of food (almost, too bad she is allergic to seafood), travel to new places and write stories about them.
