Manasvi grew up in New Delhi, and moved half-way across the world to St. Louis, Missouri in 2016. She attended Washington University in St. Louis (not to be confused with University of Washington) where she majored in Biology with minors in Biomedical Physics and Gender Studies. At WashU, she worked under Dr. Sergej Djuranovic, studying the nucleotide and peptide sequence determinants of translation efficiency in E. coli.
Never having lived on a coast and in love with bodies of water, she enthusiastically moved to Boston and is now a graduate student in the Harvard BBS program. She is currently exploring her interests in microbiology and regulation of gene expression through her diverse rotations.
When she doesn’t have a pipette in hand, she loves exploring Boston and its plethora of coffee shops, traveling when Covid is not ravaging the world, listening to live music and watching way too much Netflix.
