Bio

Anisha is a passionate freshman at Clements High School, in Sugar Land, Texas. She has a strong drive to keep learning, and she loves to solve problems to everyday issues. She has placed 1st in her category for 3 consecutive years at the Science and Engineering fair of Houston, due to her dedication and commitment. In 2017-18, Anisha designed and developed “Go with the flow - Flood prediction and warning system” using Python programming. She was invited to present her research to the Harris County Flood Control District in Houston and share her findings with the team developing a similar solution. This project also earned Anisha a place amongst the top 300 Broadcom projects in the nation. In 2019, Anisha developed a posture assistant “Back Seat Driver” to proactively help automobile drivers maintain correct posture and good health. For this, she learned how to use Arduino programming, and expanded her knowledge on circuitry. This project won first place in Computer Science category and 5 special awards at the Science and Engineering Fair, Houston. Anisha also has a strong passion for biology, and would love to combine biology and computer science in her future work. This summer, she spent weeks at UCSD in college level courses where she learned about bioinformatics, computational biology, and programing in R. She is excited to apply this newly gained knowledge to her endeavors this year!
