Meena Chakraborty SB ’19

I’ve always had a dual-interest in the sciences and humanities, which I’ve cultivated at MIT as a 6-7 (Computer Science and Molecular Biology) major with a concentration in Philosophy. I’ve also always enjoyed writing. The scientific communications portion of the curriculum has helped me explain my work more clearly, and I’ve honed this skill as part of Phil Sharp’s lab studying miRNAs. Looking back, my communications classes have definitely made me both a better writer and a better scientist.
