Nethra Subramanya is currently enrolled in the 1 year accelerated MBA program at the Johnson School. Prior to joining the MBA program, Nethra worked as an environmental consultant at AECOM, an engineering firm based in Houston. During her tenure at AECOM, she collaborated with the City of Houston on several projects that involved the design of water and waste water treatment plants. Nethra also had the opportunity to work on storm water systems that are designed to help the City of Galveston during the hurricane season. During her education at Texas A&M, Nethra's research focused on the bio-degradation of Bisphenol-A through ammonia oxidizing bacteria. Her work resulted in a co-authored paper, 'Biodegradation potential of wastewater micro-pollutants by ammonia oxidizing bacteria', which was published in the Journal Chemosphere.
Nethra has pursued courses both in sustainability and finance. She contrives someday to marry the economics of development with the sustenance of environmental resources.
