Shradha Ravikumar (she/her/hers) is currently an undergraduate at Arizona State University, where she is pursuing a major in astrobiology and a minor in astrophysics. She is especially interested in studying planetary habitability from a geologic perspective, and she plans on attending graduate school to conduct further research in that vein. While she is just beginning her career in planetary science, she hopes to combine her love for research with her enthusiasm for education and science outreach. In the summer of 2022, she interned at the Colorado School of Mines under UNAVCO’s RESESS program to study the relationship between groundwater residence time and stream hydraulic conductivity in the Manitou Experimental Forest.
