Talent Ambassador – Nitin Agrawal
My name is Nitin Agrawal. I am from India, and I hold a Ph.D. in Biochemistry. I am also an entrepreneur and a researcher in the Folkhälsan research center.
I first came to Turku, Finland for my master’s degree in Bioinformatics at the University of Turku. I had heard great things about the Bioinformatics program of the University of Turku. The university was well-known around the world, and not to mention the zero tuition fees for the master’s degree made this an indisputable choice.
I am an entrepreneur at ExtraVerd Oy (an innovation consultancy working in the environmental and sustainability sector) at the moment. I am also a post-doctoral researcher in the Folkhälsan Research center. In my free time I enjoy writing fiction; photography; long walks in the summer; and I like to keep active by playing sports (badminton, cricket, or baseball).
