Tamanna was a PhD student in Biology under co-supervision of Dr. Margaret Docker and Dr. Sara Good. Her PhD project involved gonadal transcriptomic analysis during sex differentiation and sexual maturation in sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) to determine the genes involved in the key events of gonadal developmental process and how they are expressed across different stages in both male and female lampreys. The focus of her research was to understand the genetic basis of gonad development by revealing sex- and stage-specific gene expression patterns in sea lamprey as well as identifying novel genes not identified before in sea lamprey genome. 

In 2023, Tamanna completed her PhD and she is now doing a postdoc at UBC.
