Pranali Dalvi hails from Thane, Maharashtra, India but came to the United States at the age of 2. She is currently pursuing a B.S. in biology at Duke University. She has always been intrigued by social entrepreneurship because it fosters deep meaningful connections with people locally and internationally. Her interests include medical ethics, science and technology, online and print publishing, politics, and emerging markets. With twin sister and another Resolution Fellow Prachiti Dalvi, Pranali launched The Mobile Science Lab: Toys from Trash, an enterprise to revolutionize how science education is imparted first in Mumbai and eventually around the world. By giving underprivileged children an exciting conceptual foundation of abstract science concepts using toys made from trash and scrap materials (like newspapers and plastic water bottles), her initiative aims to uncover curious scientists from the crevices of Mumbai. In the future, she hopes to work at the intersection of social entrepreneurship, science and technology, and publishing.
