2024

My name is Aishani Aatresh, and I am a sophomore (Class of 2024) from Saratoga, California in Leverett House pursuing a special concentration in complex biosocial systems. I am the co-director of Special Projects, and I'm looking forward to building connections across initiatives within and beyond the IOP to think and act more critically in animating how we see politics in the world today--whether at the local community level or in science and technology--and thus make decisions that build certain futures based on these conceptions of power. I also am a senior staff writer for the HPR and have previously been involved with the Policy Program on commissions for Health and Environment. Outside of the IOP, I conduct research at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health's Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics and work with the Harvard Kennedy School's Program on Science, Technology and Society. I also enjoy hiking/biking/running/anything outdoors, eating and cooking, reading, and having wonderful conversations!
