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 in 2014. 

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.
