Our Team

Founders

In response to an overwhelming, yet unmet requirement of Indian scientists/postdoctoral fellows who are interested in academic, industrial, and entrepreneurial opportunities in India and USA, Sci-ROI was commenced by Dr. Sriram (the then postdoctoral fellow, now Assistant Professor at Ajim Premji University, Bangalore) and Dr. Aseem Z. Ansari of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA in 2015. Sci-ROI was successfully co-founded by Dr. Ashwin Mohan, Dr. Sumitha Nallu, Dr. Megha Rajendran and Dr. Anshuman Kumar Srivastava, who persistently and tirelessly worked till the successful execution of its first annual meeting (YIM-C 2016) at Chicago in October 2016. Core team was ably assisted by web developer Gouri Kulkarni.

Organizers

Science & Research Opportunities in India (Sci-ROI) is an initiative of WINStep Forward, a not-for-profit organization. Sci-ROI solely runs on active and voluntary participation of its core team members to plan, organize and execute events including webinars, Young Investigators Meeting (YIM). Members of core working team change every two years or as existing core team members leave to embark upon their new journey. We encourage existing and new Sci-ROI members to consider applying for being a part of our core team. This is a great opportunity to expand network and learn from industry leaders. Apply here to participate as a core team member.
