Ivy Rose Sebastian

Majoring in Biotechnology from Amrita University in Kerala, India, Ivy is the newest addition to this growing initiative. To increase her scientific and worldly exposure, she followed her calling to pursue a Research Master’s in Chemical & Bioprocess Engineering from University College Dublin, Ireland. Eager to take her career to the next level, she moved to Vienna, Austria, where she is currently pursuing her doctoral degree in Biotechnology. If she isn’t working in the lab, you can find her either buried in fantasy and fiction books or organising her shelves and drawers. She ardently believes that by delving into the roots of science, we not only expand the understanding of our own existence, but also pave the way for the progression of humankind. Hence, she jumped at the opportunity to be a part of a fresh young multidisciplinary scientific platform, aimed at relaying accurate information along with tackling the fact vs fiction conundrum.
