I graduated from the University of Mumbai with a Bachelors and Masters degree in Life Sciences majoring in Biotechnology. I worked for a year as a Research Associate at Glenmark Pharmaceuticals engineering bi-specific artificial antibodies. I went on to volunteer at a Non-profit Organization shadowing various counselors involved in counseling potential H.I.V infected patients, and children with Thalassemia. Working as a volunteer teacher's aide in an inclusion school for children with special needs I gained advocacy experience. I'm multilingual, fluent in English, Hindi and Marathi; and in my free time enjoy swimming, watching soccer, playing the guitar and spending time with friends and family.
