Time for Thesis Thursday 🙂
Who’s coming to KXCI today? Listen up as we talk to our guest, Swati Chandra.
My name is Swati Chandra, and I’m currently a sophomore studying at the University of
Arizona. I’m majoring in biomedical engineering, and I’m on the pre-med track with hopes of
eventually becoming a physician. As is already quite apparent, I’m a bit of a nerd, but I’ve
always loved learning new things. Because of this, I entered college resolved to learn as much
as I could in my time here. To help me achieve this goal, I decided to give research a shot and
am currently interning at the Tissue Optics Lab, where I mainly work on image and data
analysis. Although my schoolwork and research keeps me fairly busy, in my free time I enjoy
spending time with my friends, travelling to new places, playing the piano, or just relaxing with
some coffee and a good book.
The University of Arizona’s Undergraduate Biology Research Program is partnering with KXCI 91.3 to produce “Thesis Thursday,” a weekly segment featuring student researchers talking about their undergraduate thesis projects, or research projects while working with University professors. Students describe their research, their overall goals and career interests and where they think their research will lead. They also get a chance to share the music and interests that motivate them.
Broadcast three times every Thursday with a new student each week.
Thursdays: 9:55 AM, 11:55 AM, and 2:55 PM
Created by Cathy Rivers, produced by Bridgitte Thum.
Special Thanks to Carol Bender for her help in all this radio magic.
