Hello! My name is Anisha Singh and I am senior Biomedical Engineering major from Minneapolis, Minnesota. I have been involved with Duke SWE since my freshman year, first as a Freshman Delegate, then as Treasurer for two years, and now as President. In my current role, I hope to serve a broader portion of Pratt females through consistent, well-organized events as well as to establish a place for graduate students in SWE. While I will be graduating early, I plan to remain at Duke until May in a research position, and therefore will continue to be involved in organizing and planning SWE events throughout the year.

 

Outside of SWE, I conduct research as Pratt Fellow in the Truskey lab, volunteer in the Duke Hospital Emergency Department and volunteer with FEMMES, a STEM mentorship program for preteen girls. I spent a summer doing the now discontinued DukeEngage: Jodhpur program, in which I volunteered with a grassroots NGO that serves women from the lowest Indian caste. I also spent a summer at the Mayo Clinic as a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellow and a summer doing research at Duke. In my spare time, I like to cook, watch Bollywood movies, and travel.

 

After graduation, I would like to go to medical school, and use my engineering background to improve medical therapies. Throughout my career, I hope to continue supporting women in STEM and other fields in which we are underrepresented. If you would like to talk to me about SWE or anything else I have mentioned, please feel free to contact me at as513@duke.edu. I hope to see you at our events!
