​I am Mrinalini and I am from India. Pragmatic, an occasional optimist, an avid reader and a random blogger with a keen interest in history, this is what defines me.

Audio Description: Student Ambassador - MrinaliniWhy Chalmers

I studied Biomedical engineering for my bachelor studies in India and I wanted to do my specialization in the track Biomaterials. Hence, I decided to pursue Biotechnology for my masters. The Master's programme in Biotechnology at Chalmers closely integrates biomedical studies with the field of biotechnology and the track Biomaterials has been so designed that it enables one to understand the intricacies involved.

Chalmers has given me an opportunity to learn and to keep up with the latest trends in engineering. Being from the biomedical industry and having worked as a product developer in the healthcare sector for around two years, Chalmers gives me a plethora of opportunities to augment my technical expertise and at the same time learn the nuances of the industry.

Living in Gothenburg

It has been more than eight months since I have been here. I believe I have become much more self reliant and I am enjoying living here, in new surroundings and midst of new cultures. This warm and friendly city feels like home now. Gothenburg is beautiful and so are the people, who are equally courteous. I am totally in awe of the “fika” culture, though tea is my first love.


On a bright note

I would like to use this platform to share my ideas and experiences with my friends here at Chalmers and with students around the globe.

My Bio:

  • MSc. Biotechnology, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg (September 2014 – present)
  • B.Tech. Biomedical Engineering, CITM, Faridabad, India (September 2008 - June 2012)
