Tanvi has a Bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from the Institute of Chemical Technology in Mumbai. She then went on to pursue a Master’s at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, USA where she used microfabrication techniques to create self-folding polymer geometries in the lab of Dr. David Gracias. This led her to pursue a career in microfabrication for a biomedical device setting and on to her next opportunity at Emulate, Inc. for the 3 years. She has worked on projects ranging from chip development to compound studies on the chip as well as extracellular matrix deposition and characterization in the chip.
The curiosity continued and this led her to join the Loskill Lab in June 2019 as a Marie Curie ITN Fellow to study the crosstalk between white adipose tissue and liver tissue with regards to insulin signaling (WAT-liver on Chip). In her free time, Tanvi enjoys painting, working out, hiking and exploring new cities.
