Shweta Kiran Cavale
Background: I was born and raised in India. My parents currently live in Norway but I moved to the USA for my bachelors degree at Mount Holyoke College and I am part of the Class of 2023. My major is in Biology and my minor is in Chemistry; I have been on the pre health track for all four years of college. At Mount Holyoke College, I worked at the Woodard lab on the genetic analysis of programmed cell death in Drosophila melanogaster from my sophomore year. I have always found cancer research to be thought provoking and my interest was sparked early on. I hope to continue my studies in the field of oncology with research and patient care.
Fun Facts and Interests: A fun fact about me is that I love playing tennis and I have played varsity tennis for Mount Holyoke College for four years. I enjoy hiking, travelling, swimming, and anything that involves sports. I also enjoy watching movies and more specifically horror movies.
