Hi, my name is Anwesha Sanyal and I am a first-year rotation student from India. I received my B.S. in microbiology from St. Xavier's College, Calcutta, India and my M.S. in biochemistry from University of Calcutta, India.
My research background in India has been primarily in cell biology and I am looking forward to joining a lab with similar interest areas here.
I was attracted to the Department of Biochemistry at Purdue largely because of the research being done and funding potential, but also for its welcoming and homey atmosphere where I get the opportunity to interact with every person in the department.
In my free time I enjoy reading books, mostly fictions, and also like Indian music and 1980’s rock music.
