My Story

Thiru originally intended to study the detonation characteristics of solid explosives during his masters degree, but no chemistry or spark in the field of explosives was enough to hold him from turning to his research interest in biology. He ultimately joined Siddharth's lab to pursue a Ph.D. in bioengineering. Besides research, Thiru likes watching movies and playing basketball.
