I'm currently a Ph.D. student studying vocal learning, computational single-cell analyses, and comparative evolutionary genomics at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

I am originally from North Carolina, and I completed my undergraduate degree at UNC Chapel Hill. When I'm not in the lab, I'm listening to music or at a live show, writing or hiking (weather-permitting).

For more information on my previous experience, you can download my curriculum vitae or my resume in pdf form here (last updated Summer 2023). The best way to contact me is at rganesan at andrew.cmu.edu :)

this website was a "fun side project to learn HTML" turned into a public-facing, severe work in progress.
