Ayushi Mishra, a Forbes 30 Under 30 awardee, is a Biomedical Engineer and holds an MS in Engineering Management from Johns Hopkins University. She started her first venture-- Marigold Health, while still in graduate school. It is a digital health platform with Artificial Intelligence to scale peer support and therapy. Marigold Health is currently funded by the National Institutes of Health and Rock Health foundation. In late 2017, she moved to India to work for DronaMaps, a company co-founded by her longtime friend and fellow Hopkins student-- Utkarsh Singh. DronaMaps specializes in large-scale mapping with drones and extraction of geospatial analytics from it. Ayushi specializes in solution design at the intersection of design, technology, and business. She is passionate about the use of emerging technology to create a positive impact on the human condition. During the Covid-19 Crisis, DronaMaps volunteered their platform to seven states across India acting as a command and control center. The deployment was inspired by Hopkins Covid-19 dashboards but ended up providing deeper analytics like patient tracking, healthcare infrastructure tracking, containment and hotspot analysis, predictions on the spatial and epidemiological spread of the disease at a district level for almost 130 districts across India. Ayushi has been recognized by Vogue Magazine as one of eight women in STEM leading the battle against Covid-19 in India.
