B.M.S. College of Engineering, India

Radhakrishnan HamsanandiniHello! I am Hamsanandini Radhakrishnan, and I know that’s a mouthful, so you can just call me Hamsi. I am from India and I recently graduated with a B.E in Biotechnology Engineering from BMS College of Engineering. I have worked on a few computational projects like sequencing long ncRNAs in the Y-chromosome to understand their role in Autism Spectrum Disorders and studying gene duplication models using the yeast genome as a sample system. My primary research interests include computational neuroscience, population genetics, cancer biology, quantitative epidemiology and biostatistics, amongst other things.

Outside of the lab, I enjoy reading, performance poetry, watching specifically bad rom-coms, playing board games, and listening to indie music. I absolutely love going to the beach and am very excited about discovering the beaches of California during my stay here.
