Hello there! My name is Anushka Sukhadia and this May I graduated from the OU Norman Campus. I studied Biology and minored in Microbiology. In the future, I would like to pursue further studies in microbiology or infectious disease, as well as expand my research abilities in the field of microbiology. In the past, I had the privilege of working with Dr. Daniel Becker on a study focusing on the presence of Bartonella in Mexican Free-tailed bats throughout their migratory journey. The experience was incredible, and I learned many basic lab techniques and skills, exposing me to the interesting world of disease ecology.
My hobbies include baking, reading, swimming, and occasionally going on nature walks when the weather isn’t too bad! I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work and learn here at OUHSC and look forward to expanding my knowledge in the lab and classroom during the PREP program!
