About Harsha Malapati

My name is Harsha Malapati and I am a student at William & Mary. You probably already know that from the large bolded words at the top of the webpage, but I wanted to make sure everyone reading this is on the same page.

Other than making awkward introductions with the intention of being funny, I enjoy going to the gym, participating in racquetball tournaments, and playing Madden. Academically speaking, I am part of a research lab which studies axon degeneration in zebra finches (not a cross between a zebra and a finch), and I discovered a phage and named it "harshDADDY."

I do some other stuff too which you can read more about somewhere below. Don’t forget to like, comment, and subscribe… wait, nevermind.
