About Me

I’m Swati and I’m a 6th year PhD student in the exciting field of synthetic biology where we try to use genetic engineering to bring greener and sustainable solutions to the world’s problems be it in medicine, fuel, diagnostics or bio-remediation.

This year I will be working with Ms Marianne Marks at Oak Hill Middle School in Newton, MA bringing an understanding of climate change through exciting science projects. Middle school students will get to do science as scientists do it in their labs or out in the fields.

This is a great opportunity for me to experience science at the school level through the eyes of a teacher rather and I am grateful for the chance to be part of the BU-Glacier GK-12 team and experience!
