Aparna Nair-Kanneganti

Aparna is a sophomore Applied Physics major in Jonathan Edwards College. She originally hails from Cleveland, Ohio, but did most of her growing up in various New York towns before moving to the city itself during her sophomore year of high school.

Aparna is an active member of the campus music and theater scenes, and recently finished a summer of research in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. She's also an avid reader and is always looking for book recommendations!

Aparna credits her passion for education to her high school calculus teacher, whose guidance was instrumental to her as she discovered her self-confidence and love for math and science. She is thrilled to assist her tutees in turn as they explore their interests in STEM, and hopes to make this often exclusive and intimidating field as accessible as possible to them.
