After completing M.Sc. in Physics from Tribhuwan University, Nepal, Ramesh joined Sanjeevi's Lab in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Iowa State University. Ramesh moved to UC Davis with Sanjeevi and  defended his Ph.D. in May 2021. He is currently an interim postdoc in the lab.

Ramesh is interested in understanding the biophysical mechanisms of cadherin mediated cell-cell adhesion. Using single molecule AFM force measurements in live cells, he is currently studying how cadherins sense external mechanical stimuli and regulate adhesion.
