Vaishnavi is an undergraduate environmental engineering student in National University of Singapore. Currently, she is pursuing a research-based study to evaluate the causes and effects of microplastics in Singapore’s seas and coasts.
Her interests lie in finding ways of minimising toxicity of everyday products, conservation of biodiversity in Singapore and provision of a safer marine environment for animals. An animal lover, she is a vegetarian and feels strongly against animal testing.
Holding the belief that science can also hold answers to the problems it seems to have created, she hopes she can work as a research fellow in the future, trying to find practical ways of fighting environmental problems.
