Bikram grew up in New Jersey, and he moved to Austin, Texas at the start of his teenage years. He is a senior at Rice University majoring in Environmental Science with a concentration in Earth Science. During his academic career, Bikram has had the opportunity to explore a variety of earth/environmental topics through conducting scientific research, including ocean science, marine renewable energy, and hydrogen energy policy. He was involved with his residential college’s eco committee for two years, working on projects to promote sustainability at the college-level. Outside of these pursuits, he is also involved in student government and helped co-found Rice’s mixed martial arts club, through which he coaches Muay Thai for Rice students. Bikram is interested in learning more about how environmental justice and water justice issues impact local communities in the city of Houston. He hopes to apply his background and skills towards watershed research, advocating for clean water, and engaging in community outreach. He is excited to work with Bayou City Waterkeeper this spring!
