Amrita graduated from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, in 2012 with a second upper class honours Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences. Thereafter, she worked as a Research Officer at the Singapore Immunology Network, an institute of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) for 2 years, where she conducted research in chronic Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and Hepatocellular Carcinoma. She worked on projects investigating how HBV is regulated in the cells and the identification of host factors that support the reproduction of the virus.

In 2014, Amrita left A*STAR to pursue a Masters degree at Imperial College Business School in the UK, and was conferred a Master of Science degree with distinction in International Health Management in 2015. The interdisciplinary nature of her postgraduate course provided her with a broad knowledge of business management, specifically in the healthcare and life sciences sectors, through a range of modules such as health economics, strategic management and managing change, and innovation in healthcare. She also gained experience in consulting during her Masters course through a project executed for a major pharmaceutical company in the UK, which aimed to strategise the expansion of its integrated care programme for heart failure to other chronic conditions.

Amrita joined Costello Medical as an Analyst in June 2016. She is looking forward to using her knowledge and experience in the life sciences and healthcare management to work on a range of projects and contribute to the further growth of the company.
