Vipal graduated cum laude with a Juris Doctor in 2018. Alongside her studies, Vipal worked as a researcher with Professor Oguamanam from December 2015 until May 2018. Her interest in international intellectual property, biotechnology, and sustainable development made her particularly valuable to both the Open AIR Network and the ABS Canada project; in fact, during her research, Vipal produced more content for the ABS blog than any other member of the team (except only for Prof. Oguamanam himself).
Vipal also holds a Bachelor of Science, with a specialization in genetics and biotechnology, from the University of Toronto. She is the co-founder of BioTown, a nonprofit organization in Ottawa that encourages accessible science.
