Malavika is a junior at Washington University in St. Louis pursuing a BA in Neuroscience. She is currently focused on analyzing ethno-racial differences in biomarkers of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and investigating how these differences are impacted by social determinants of health. She joined the Ances Lab in early 2022 and is excited to continue investigating and learning about biomarkers of AD while combining her interest in neurodegenerative diseases with her background in computer science. Outside of the lab, Malavika is a volunteer EMT with the WashU Emergency Support Team and likes to walk through St. Louis with friends and play the piano in her free time.
