Sadhika Dhanasekar

Sadhika is currently a sophomore at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, who is passionate about the intersection between biology and computer science. In the past, she has created an Android calendar app, using psychologically proven research methods, that will mitigate procrastination and has worked with AWS to create an Alexa program dedicated to mitigating the lack of direct communication between legislators and their citizens. She has also created numerous robots through programs like VEX Robotics and hopes to teach that knowledge when mentoring little kids. In the future, Sadhika wants to pursue a career in either biomedical engineering or computation biology, which she hopes will help her combine her love of biology and computer science and create products that will help people in need using programs like WEKA or MatLab.
