Hey guys, this is Anumanthram Senthilkumar, I am pursuing my Masters in Biotechnology and based at the Clayton Campus.

I completed bachelors in Biotechnology and I decided to stay in the field, since science interested me a lot and the field is ever growing and improving.

Coming from a country of billion people, thousands of cultures, languages and dialects, I believe I understand diversity and the need for an inclusive community during education. Since bachelors, extra curricular activities interested me more than the curricular ones and I was always up for cultural and fun events on the campuses.

This is my major motivation to be a part of the MGA. Studying online would have got more depressing if it weren’t for the activities organised by the MGA and I wanted to contribute something back for that.

I believe in working towards a change and bringing a positive impact everywhere I go. There is always scope to improve and make this world a better place for all and I aim to do that. I believe this position could contribute to that cause. I intend to make MGA more accessible and reachable, build interdepartmental connections that would help smooth the journey of graduate students post-graduation. I would also love to learn new things and develop my existing skills through this opportunity and I am looking forward to new challenges and adventures.

Personal Interests

I have a strong passion for travelling and exploring new places, learning about new cultures and traditions, apart from being a biotechnologist – I am a writer. I love to drive and play soccer in my free time, if I don’t waste a lot of time on socials :-0
