Swami Nathan

Swami attended Rishi Valley (RV) from 1981 – 1987 and was nicknamed “Dumukutu” (after the mridangam that he learned). While at RV, he developed an interest for Indian Classical Music, bicycling and hiking. Swami's most enduring memory of RV was trying to get to the “Middle Peak” (between Rishikonda and Bodikonda) but never making it and participating in a drag beauty contest for boys that raised a few eyebrows (back in 1984)! Currently, Swami leads a research group at University of Virginia focused on biomedical diagnostic systems for point of care and resource-poor settings towards personalizing therapies. His vision is for children around the world to have similar opportunities to what we afford for our own kids. More information
