She holds a doctorate in neurobiology and biomedical engineering from Tufts University in Boston, where she studied the neuromechanics of insects to fabricate biomimetic terrestrial robots. Her collaborations through inter-disciplinary projects propelled her to discover patterns in multidimensional data, ranging from electromyography to high-speed videos, thereby fueling her passion for data science.
Before joining this team, Ritwika was a fellow in a competitive data science program in the US where she built a machine-learning app that predicted delays in travel time for commuters in Boston. She founded a consultancy group, held internships, and coordinated technology events while pursuing her PhD. Now, she strives to build diversity in the field of data science.
