After I did my bachelor’s in mathematics and computing (IIT Delhi), I was convinced that I wanted to put my skills to use somewhere I can positively impact the lives of people. I decided to do an interdisciplinary master’s in Bioinformatics (University of Birmingham, UK) to get a head start on the use of informatics in the field of biology. During my stay in the UK, I was heavily involved in the COVID research on cancer patients with UKCCMP (UK Coronavirus Cancer Monitoring Project) which further motivated me to work towards health science and genetics-based research. With ENHPATHY, not only do I get excellent support and resource to undergo my research but also a platform to connect with the masses and spread awareness about the importance of such initiatives.
Apart from my research, I enjoy learning new languages and cultures. I am an avid consumer of Japanese literature and media, and also enjoy learning the language. I find my solace in meticulous artwork and building things from scratch. I indulge in painting, piano, embroidery, crochet, building miniature models, and reading books. I also enjoy volunteering for different activities like walking dogs, teaching children, or helping with elderly care. As for sports, I have always loved fencing and swimming.
