Anushka Dasgupta | Senior
1st – Anatomy & Physiology, Designer Genes // 2nd – Water Quality (State ’19)
Favorite Event: Anatomy & Physiology
Anushka Dasgupta is a third-year member and a senior captain. She specializes in biology events with success in events like Anatomy & Physiology and Designer Genes. She likes ranting about bad tests, subsidizing her lack of sleep by drinking concerning amounts of coffee and looking at Science Olympiad memes. One of the main reasons for the success we’ve had as a team is that she fixes the printer everytime someone else breaks it. While Anushka’s very driven and focused, you can often find her joking with the team. Her favorite part of Science Olympiad is both the team aspect and competition, and she is excited to meet new members this year. Outside of SciOly, you can find her dedicating her life to the Hilite, rallying for children’s causes and playing piano. She loves listening to Chopin, playing with dogs and learning anything bio-related.

His favorite part about Science Olympiad is the team aspect, as he loves to banter and joke with his teammates. He’s good at making people laugh and lightening the mood, but don’t underestimate his hard work and commitment to his team.
