Hi! I am currently pursuing my Master's degree in Bioengineering from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I am also pursuing research on lung biology at the University of Illinois Medical Center. I am also a Teaching Assistant in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University.I have an undergraduate degree in Biotechnology from Pune University, India. Back home, I was associated with the 'Teach for India' program that helped underprivileged kids get access to basic education. I love teaching basic and advanced science and mathematics by getting involved with the students. For me, teaching is not just another profession, its a calling! I believe, as the great Benjamin Franklin said, " Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."
