Deepak K Agrawal received his Ph.D. degree in engineering from the University of Cambridge, UK in 2013, where he was affiliated with the Department of Engineering and Nanoscience Centre. In his first postdoctoral work at Johns Hopkins University, USA, he constructed complex DNA-based self-assembled nanomaterials with precise control over assembly dynamics and synthetic biochemical reaction networks for the rapid detection of clinically relevant proteins. Building upon this, in follow-up research positions, he worked on a wide range of projects on synthetic biology, and computational medicines at Boston University, Northeastern University, and the University of Colorado, USA. Most notably, he worked with Eduardo Sontag and Vincent Noireaux on the development of the first synthetic biomolecular feedback controller to improve the robustness of in vitro biological processes. 

He joined as an Assistant Professor in the Center for Biomedical Engineering, IIT Delhi in 2021. His current research interests include developing computational tools and biochemical reaction networks for diagnostic and therapeutic applications using advancements in synthetic biology, DNA nanotechnology, and data assimilation.
