Tejas Aralere

Graduate Student


I graduated from The College of William and Mary in 2015 with a BA in Latin and a BS in Neuroscience in my home state of Virginia.  My undergraduate years consisted of numerous hours spent in a developmental neuroscience research lab.  I found every spare moment taken up with Latin homework and exploring various topics in ancient science.  After graduating, I continued my Classics education at W&M by enrolling in the Classics post-baccalaureate program (2016), during which I was also able to study Sanskrit.

My research focuses primarily on the intersections between Indian and Greek philosophy and ancient science.  The department’s willingness to allow me to pursue my inter-disciplinary interests showed me it was the right place for me and I am grateful and excited for both being accepted into UCSB and the opportunity to continue my research.
