Background and Research Interests

Ankita graduated from the University of Delhi with a Bachelor of Science in Food Technology and experience working with the Food and Drug Administration in India. Through that experience, she developed a keen interest in learning more about environmental contaminants in food and the creation of standards for the protection of public health. Her research in the Carignan Lab combines food science with epidemiology, water quality, soil, and crop sciences to investigate exposure pathways for poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances.
