Shruti is a rising sophomore Biomedical Engineering major and Neuroscience and Chemistry double minor. She works as a pre-editor for BioResources, an online, peer reviewed journal devoted to the science and engineering of lignocellulosic materials. She is interested in Nanomedicine and Nanotechnology, and plans to integrate her engineering background with a career in medicine.
iGEM is Shruti's first undergraduate research experience where she has learned valuable lab techniques and enhanced her scientific knowledge beyond the classroom setting. In her free time, Shruti enjoys to play the violin. She also volunteers at local hospitals and libraries.
