Anish Bagga named Goldwater Scholar
Anish “Max” Bagga, a junior at Emory College of Arts and Sciences, has been named one of the Goldwater Scholars for 2022. Offering up to $7,500 per year during undergraduate studies, it is the nation’s top scholarship for undergraduates studying math, natural sciences, and engineering. Inspired by the pandemic disruption, Bagga, a joint major in math and computer science, decided to tackle two distinct projects: Building a computational model of how humans distribute thyroid hormones to tissue as part of research at Rollins School of Public Health, and conducting spatial analysis to see how efficient different animal hosts are at allowing the flu virus to exchange genes and create new strains at Emory School of Medicine. He hopes to merge the virology-focused influenza project with his modeling skills to build a model that can show how the flu spreads, accumulates, and dissipates in people.
