Hi there! I’m Jothi Ramaswamy!
I am a junior at Harvard University, studying computer science and economics. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, working out and going for runs, and cooking/baking new recipes. I love to code and am also really passionate towards STEM and improving gender diversity in STEM. I founded my 501(c)(3) non-profit organization ThinkSTEAM to raise awareness of the gender gap in STEM and STEAM, which incorporates the arts and generally represents STEM’s intersection with humanities and social sciences. Many girls artistic and visual learners, making the arts a useful tool to teach STEM in an engaging way. Not only that though, but STEM’s intersection with humanities/social sciences allows us to think of STEM in the context of the people it impacts so that we can make sure STEM doesn’t exacerbate any gender and racial inequities. Obviously, I do really care about equality in STEM, especially in terms of gender, and it is especially important that this holds true in the people it benefits.

I took a leave of absence from Harvard after my freshman year due to the pandemic, and during my leave I worked on a new podcast initiative with ThinkSTEAM titled Lightbulb Moment! Check it out in the link below!
