I am Sanki (short for Sankalpi) with a PhD in Genetics from Michigan State University and a BS with summa cum laude in Plant Biotechnology from the University of Colombo, Sri Lanka. I have been a permanent resident in the US for 12 years and have been working in sustainable energy research and education for 6+years in MO. Now, I am at the SIU School of Medicine in Springfield, IL.

I hold a certificate in Scientific Teaching of Biology from Michigan State University and also take cutting edge research to high schools in MO and IL to inspire the next generation of scientists. I also conduct workshops to train high school teachers. Being an Education Programs Facilitator at the Donald Danforth Plant Science center inspired me to teach high school students and my goal is to widen the scope of science education and teach students easy ways to grasp complex concepts in biology, genetics and biochemistry.
