Here he was working on the project of ‘mRNA localization at the neuromuscular Junction in Drosophila’. The main focus of the research was to identify localized mRNA in the neuromuscular junction of Drosophila and the work involved fly genetics, molecular biological techniques, microscopy and overall lab maintenances as well as supervising the fly media facility that supplies 12 different groups in the University. He was promoted twice during his tenure and was appointed as a Senior Research Technician in 2010 and in early 2012 appointed as a Drosophila Genetic Technician.
