As a quest on how to improve the world, Shashini started studying neuroscience. If we understand the brain, we understand behavior, if we understand behavior, we understand why people make the choices they make. Although she felt that as a neuroscientist she was doing valuable work, she wanted to have a bigger impact. These days, Shashini works as a policy officer at NWO (Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek) where she contributes to science by safeguarding the quality of research, facilitating innovation and increasing science's impact on society.

During her studies, Shashini actively performed the Indian classical dance Bharata Natyam. These days she is more interested in theatre, singing and writing.
