Rijul Bhimwal

Rijul is an international student entering his sophomore year at Penn State. He is currently majoring in Biotechnology and finished his freshmen year with a 4.0 GPA. Even though Rijul has only been in college for less than a year, he has been an active participant outside the classroom, serving as the fund-raising officer for the Biotech Club and as a NEXUS science orientation leader for the Eberly College of Science.

Aside from working in the Kaminski lab, Rijul has an interest in genetics and living systems, and with resource scarcity plaguing the world he hopes to one day have his own lab that conducts research on genes of interests that when introduced into living organisms can increase produce quality and prevent diseases.

Rijul also has an interest in combining research with a teaching position and will be serving as a learning assistant for biochemistry and molecular biology in the Fall. He is also in training to be an RA. Rijul hopes that he can continue growing while at Penn State and use the knowledge and experience to work towards his future goals.
