Originally from India, I moved to the U.S. after obtaining my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in biotechnology. Finding my way through the vast field of biology, I landed on an island called reproductive biology. I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Chavez and Hennebold labs on OHSU’s West Campus. I am interested in (in)fertility studies and understanding the male and female gamete production. Outside of the lab, I am a professional Bharatanatyam (Indian Classical dance) dancer and perform throughout the U.S. and in India. This, along with crocheting and movies, are my all-time stress busters!!
