Shreyas Chetan was born in Brooklyn, New York and spent the early part of his life traveling and living in different states and countries. He currently resides in Jacksonville, Florida with his parents, sister, and dog, Thunder. Chetan spent the majority of his summers as a kid in India, however, in all his time staying in India, he had never left the southern state of Karnataka where his family is from. Because of this fact, Chetan’s research project was especially exciting as he got to experience a different part of the subcontinent, delving into the culture and learning more about the people there. Having a minor in IDS has allowed Chetan to explore many of his passions such as traveling, meeting new people, and conducting research which he would have not been able to do without all of his mentors' support on this project.
