Hi HumBio!! My name is Geeta (she/her) and I'm a senior from Saint Paul, Minnesota! I'm super excited to be an SA this year and meet all of you! My concentration in HumBio is "Exploring Health Disparities through a Big Data Lens." I love that HumBio gives us the flexibility to combine multiple interests into one major - my concentration has enabled me to take classes across public health, health policy, and data science fields. I'm also pursuing an honors thesis in HumBio, using health data to explore patterns of health disparities. Ultimately, I hope to become a physician-scientist who works with under-served communities and conducts research to advance health equity.
Outside of HumBio, I love dancing! I served as captain of Stanford's competitive Indian dance team, Basmati Raas, and I'm a Bollywood dance teacher. I also conduct research on campus regarding health disparities, and am excited to serve as President of Stanford Women in Medicine (SWIM) this year! During the summers, I enjoy working as a scribe at a trauma center and volunteering in the ER. Two of my greatest passions in life are coffee and chocolate!! I would love to chat with you about your interests and help you find a place within our wonderful HumBio community! Super excited to work with you! ?
