About Me

I am from the hot and humid city of Mumbai in India. I have been in the New England area for over a year and am still getting used to the winters! I attended the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani (BITS Pilani) – K K Birla Goa Campus for my undergraduate education. I graduated with a dual degree of M.Sc. in Biological Sciences and B.E. in Electrical and Electronics Engineering in August 2019.

As an undergraduate, I undertook myriad of courses and research projects which sparked my interest in the fields of stem cell biology and genomics. At MCO, I look forward to exploring various diverse research domains that I haven’t been exposed to before.

I also completed a minor in Finance during my undergraduate studies owing to which I have a penchant for Healthcare entrepreneurship and finance. Outside science, I enjoy playing board games and dancing. During my free time, I aspire to work on my new found knack for cooking spicy Indian recipes.
