Sanjana spent her undergraduate career focused on development economics and environmental issues, including teaching in rural villages in Mauritius, working on the Energy and Environment team at USAID, and growing Stanford’s energy/environmental student organization across other college campuses in Singapore, Sweden, and Denmark.
