Priyanka graduated with a doctorate in Bioengineering from Nanyang Technological University in 2017. Her research expertise is in developing conjugated carbon nanomaterials for a variety of biomedical applications such as anti-microbial nanomaterials and biofuel cells. She has previously helped develop a POC diagnostics kit for HIV, and a tubeless tracheostomy device to target occlusion accumulation for long-term users during her stints at Harvard-MIT HST and the SSB Innovation Class 2012, respectively. She hopes to work together with MedTech innovators to develop and implement solutions for various unmet medical needs across Asia. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, dancing, travelling and volunteering for diverse causes.
