Nandita is really interested in using eco-friendly technology to help people all around the world stay healthy. She’s from India and now works as a research associate at the Koch Institute. Her job is all about creating a special way to give vaccines with just one shot. She uses tiny pieces made of material that can break down in the body. She wants to make science easier for everyone to understand.
When she’s not working, she finds inspiration in books and loves the calm and beauty of mountains.
