When Abhi Upadhyay was featured on this blog as a new faculty member, he mentioned that he was grateful for direct flights to Nashville so that he could visit his daughter and wife, who was an assistant professor at Tennessee Tech University at the time.
Now, it is Indu Upadhyaya’s turn to be the new highlighted CAHNR faculty member. On June 7, Indu started as the assistant cooperative extension educator in food safety. Here is what she said in an interview.
Where did you get your degrees? I received a bachelor of veterinary science and animal husbandry (equivalent to DVM) and a master’s degree in veterinary biochemistry from Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Veterinary Education and Research in Pondicherry. I completed my PhD from UConn in animal science with a focus on food safety and microbiology. (Editor’s note: Her graduate student profile is on this blog.)
