Jayashree Adivarahan is a rising sophomore, and came to ASU in Fall 2021. Computer science algorithms and circuit analysis intrigued her in high school, and increased her passion for fields like semiconductor technology and AI/ML. She decided to pursue Electrical Engineering at ASU- a nationally renowned program – due to her deep passion for the field.

Outside the classroom, Jayashree is involved in student organizations like the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and Engineers Without Borders (EWB). Jayashree’s committment to increasing access to drinking water after witnessing how this impacted others during her travels motivated her to join the EWB International Kenya project – which aims to increase access to clean drinking water by implementing a rainwater catchment system. She also aims to help be a part of the change to increase women’s presence in STEM through organizations like SWE as she believes in the impact women can have with an education and a career in STEM. She is involved with the Grand Challenges Scholars Program where she worked on a cryptocurrency security related project. She is also an undergraduate research assistant for ULTRA, a project focused on developing a cleaner electricity grid through materials grown in the lab. This year, Jayashree was recognized as one of the twenty two recipients of the Cadence Women in Technology Scholarship and an Electrical Engineering geared scholarship through SWE. She is also looking forward to working as an engineering intern at Northrop Grumman this summer.

She is looking forward to giving back to the ASU community as an ECEE Ambassador!
