Anahitha was born and brought up in Bengaluru. She spent her school years growing a passion for science, art, and books. She took up a BS degree in Materials Science at IISc in 2019 and joined the Immunoengineering lab in February 2022 for her thesis work. She is fascinated with the interdisciplinary sciences and biomedical research is of particular interest to her. She is always excited about a new art project and loves to doodle. Anahitha is completely annoying about quizzes and boardgames-so you’ll want her on your team! Her mission to find the best gobi manchurian in the city is not yet accomplished. She enjoys watching TV shows and loves a good nap.
