“No matter what anyone else says, science is what makes or breaks us. Admittedly, sometimes both.”
- - Dr. Kajal Dua
A graduate of Berkeley and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she achieved doctorates in both archaeology and biology, Kajal Dua was initially reluctant to accept an offer to work as a geneticist with the Hammond Foundation when approached, though her desire to be at the forefront of scientific discovery prompted her to accept. Upon rising to the position of chief geneticist, as well as the head of the Hammond Foundation's Science division, charged with cloning new dinosaurs, Dr. Dua had already established fraught relations with Security chief George Lambert, while former InGen chief geneticist Dr. Henry Wu held a low opinion of her.
