SRSA Star – March

Mashiat Mimosa


Hi everyone, my name is Mashiat and I am excited to be joining SRSA this year as a treasurer. I am a 3rd year PhD student at the department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology. My research focuses on brain cancer diagnostics and classification.

  1. Is there a movie or show that you keep rewatching and why?
    There are few bollywood movies from early 2000s that I keep rewatching because they remind me of my childhood and life back home.
  2. What is currently at the top of your bucket list?
    Currently an europe trip is on my bucket list, hopefully I can cross it off before finishing grad school!
  3. What is your favourite way to unwind?
    My favourite way to unwind is to listen to podcasts or watch documentaries on topics unrelated to science because they help me see the world from a different perspective.
