Ajay received a Doctoral degree from NTU Singapore where he worked in stem cell mechanobiology field. He then worked with Prof. Michael Sheetz at Mechanobiology Institute, NUS as a postdoc. There, he found that cancer cells were vulnerable to mechanical forces and selectively killed by application of external mechanical forces. In Nov 2021, he joined the Centre for Biosystems Science and Engineering (BSSE) where his lab works on investigating the effect of mechanical forces on cancer cell growth and in regulating stem cell fate using custom-built microfluidic devices and micro/nanoscale biomaterials.
