Nishita Dashpute, Cheng Lab

Nishita (she/her) is an incoming second year at UC Berkeley studying Ecosystem Management and Forestry and minoring in data science and food systems. She is excited to not only explore Brooklyn this summer, but also study microplastics in urban soils under Dr. Cheng. In the future, Nishita hopes to develop and implement data-driven strategies that enhance ecosystem resilience and carbon sequestration, but for now, she enjoys biking, reading, and photography.
