Profile Biography 
Hi there,

I am a junior majoring in biotech with a minor in economics. Attempting on knowing what is not known yet is my source of dopamine! I am deeply interested by the intersection of stem cell biology in demystifying the biological conundrum around neuropsychiatric disorders. I am excited by all things neuroscience, stem cells and development! I also am involved in projects solving problems of antibiotic resistance and applying machine learning to biology.

I love teaching and communicating science with non-specialist audiences, and I love doing STEM (neuroscience mainly) outreach. Apart from being a scientist-in-training, I am a social entrepreneur trying to make Indian high school STEM more inclusive, interdisciplinary, and innovative.

Outside of science, I am enamoured by startups, development economics, and polity. I actively advocate for mental health awareness, gender equality in STEM , economic empowerment, and interdisciplinary STEM education. When not working, I enjoy learning new languages, listening to Indian classical music, or playing with my dog, Murphy.

Feel free to shoot me a text if you wish to discuss anything about STEM!
