Kannada, Hindi, English

I come from Vijayapura in Karnataka, and am a first-generation doctor in my family, thanks to the efforts and hardwork of my parents Shri Mallayya and Smt Sujata, and my brother Dr. Vijay. I completed my MD in Medicine from AIIMS Delhi in 2017, and DM in Endocrinology and Metabolism from AIIMS Jodhpur in 2022.

I am passionate about holistic and collaborative management of endocrine disorders, with focus on patient-centric care. My areas of interest include diabetes technology, pituitary and bone disorders. I am also invested in medical teaching and academic writing. Outside of work, I am an avid musician and reader, with particular interest in Hindustani classical music.

I am thrilled to have joined the JNMC fraternity, and am looking forward to contributing to the rich legacy of the institution.
