Ushashi Basu

Ushashi is a final year student of Biochemistry and Cell Biology at Jacobs University, Bremen, Germany. She actively takes part in the research labs at her university and is currently working on her Bachelor's thesis. The other Ushashi is a passionate communicator and PR head; she blogs for her university's undergraduate blog and her personal websites, she is a junior editor for a science communication platform and she is the communications officer at the Journal of Young Investigators, not to forget her active role in the Jacobs Theatre Club. In short, Ushashi is always either talking, writing, or communicating ideas. As a very emotive and talkative person, nothing makes her happier than making connections and helping people make connections. She is also a huge pop-culture enthusiast (+an ardent fan of Shawn Mendes) and often takes part in friendly, critical debates about the same. Typically, you'd find her clacking away at her laptop in the corner of a cafe, while sipping a very sugary Cappuccino.
