Arnav Lal

Hi!  My name is Arnav, and I am a Biophysics and Philosophy major in the class of 2023.  I have had the amazing opportunities to study biological systems such as developing embryos and dynamic microbiomes in labs at Penn.  Outside of research, I am involved in Penn's Philosophy for the Young (P4Y) Project, Penn Taekwondo Club, and am a part of Steering for Stouffer College House.  My research spans an array of methods, from philosophical analysis of embryo utilization, to biophysical modelling of physiological states in embryology, and even to pathogenic bioinformatics analysis.I realize that finding a lab to work in as an undergraduate is both a daunting and exciting experience, and so feel free to reach out to me if you want to talk about any stage of this process!
