Meet Monishaa Murali

Hi everyone! My name is Monishaa Murali (she/her), and I am a junior majoring in the MCB Honors Concentration. Here's a little bit about me: Off campus, I volunteer in the Carle Foundation Hospital where I've worked with a broad age group of pediatric patients. I've also worked as a Science instructor for the YMCA summer camps. I really enjoying spending time and working with children as I feel they are so genuine and there's a lot to learn from them! On campus, I do research with Dr. Oldfield where we are working on combatting antibiotic resistance. I'm also the President of the Bioscience Journal Club, which is a club dedicated towards getting students involved in research and able to analyze scientific literature. Fun fact about me: I love learning new things. In my free time, I love being outdoors and staying active. Some of my hobbies include running, going to the gym, and reading books. I am always open to sharing advice on coursework, college life, or anything in general. I hope to provide a solid support system for students who need advice on taking the first steps towards their future goals. Feel free to say hi if you see me around campus. I'm looking forward to meeting and working with you!
