Biology

Krti is interested in the transmission dynamics of environmental diseases as they relate to climate and anthropogenic stressors. As a US Fulbright Scholar, Krti conducted analyses on the responses of dengue fever to climatic stressors off the coast of the Bay of Bengal, in India. Currently, Krti works with Stanford University to understand the role of schistosomiasis in environmental reservoirs, and leads several teams in the pursuit of a machine-learning based analysis of eelgrass wasting disease dynamics in coastal California. At Stanford, Krti serves as one of the few trans-disciplinary experts for planetary health topics, via machine learning and computer vision, data science, environmental policy, and science communication. As a STEM innovator and a first-generation woman of color, Krti is proud to represent the Stanford Data Science community in the 2023 Cohort!
