Kritin Karkare, violin, 2015 graduate
bio written 2018
Kritin is a third year Bioengineering major at University of California, San Diego studying bioinformatics and cognitive science. He's passionate about bridging the gap between scientists and non-scientists and is a staff writer for the Jacob School of Engineering. He wants to get a Ph.D. and perform research while teaching undergraduates.
Kritin has kept up with his musical interests by playing violin in his school's Intermission orchestra and Chamber Orchestra for the past three years, and hopes to arrange and conduct his own pieces too. His fondest memory of CVYO was playing in the “CVYO goes Pops!” concert and getting exposed to an incredibly different genre of music that he hadn't been exposed to before.
