I am a trained scientist, science communicator, career coach, and advocate for equity in health and STEM.

I currently work at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard as the Associate Director of Science Engagement, Policy, and Advocacy. I develop and lead programs and strategic community partnerships to advance the Broad’s public engagement efforts, including the Broad Discovery Center, and organize strategic thinking and connectivity around government relations and science policy across the institute.

I am on the board of directors of Asian Women for Health, The Innovation Trail of Greater Boston, and am one of the Kendall Square Association’s Emerging Leaders. I also serve as an Adjunct Professor of Science Communication at Clemson University.

I hold a Ph.D. in Environmental Toxicology from Clemson University, an MS in Biotechnology from Bangalore University, and a BS in Chemistry from the University of Calcutta.
