Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology
Curator of Invertebrate Zoology in the Museum of Comparative Zoology

Mansi received her A.B. in Biological Sciences from Mount Holyoke College, where became fascinated by the process of regeneration and wrote her honors thesis on regeneration in segmented worms. She studied animal evolution using comparative genomics for her Ph.D. in Molecular and Cell Biology from the University of California at Berkeley. For her postdoctoral training at the Whitehead Institute/MIT, Mansi returned to her interest in regeneration and developed the three-banded panther worm as a new research organism for studying the evolution of regeneration. In 2015, Mansi joined the faculty of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University and became a Curator of Invertebrate Zoology at the Museum of Comparative Zoology. Mansi’s research group uses panther worms to develop new approaches for studying both the mechanisms and evolution of regeneration.
