Meet The Team

Lead Editor

My name is Anusri Yanumula, and I am a third-year 3+4 BSMD student. In addition to leading CHS Sideline, I have spent the last few years involving myself with campus life at CHS through drug discovery research and PAL-ing for General and Organic Chemistry. I was born and raised in Troy, Michigan, but I hate cold weather, and I especially hate snow. In my free time, I like to sing, dance, and eat ice cream. I enjoy expressing myself through the art of writing, and as an editor and cofounder of CHS Sideline, I hope to continue bringing out the voice of the student body and promoting our student life.

Managing Editor

I am Darren Nguyen, currently a 2nd year 3+4 student in the BSMD program. I am the Managing Editor for CHS Sideline. My job is to regularly update the website with posts and aesthetic changes. My contributions to Sideline include writing book reviews for C.J Box’s Joe Pickett series. So far, I have managed to cover 2 out of the 17 books he has published. I do plan on writing reviews on every book in the Joe Pickett series before I graduate. However, I am open to review other books, if enough readers suggest it. My hobbies include swimming, reading, and playing games (namely Fire Emblem). My goals for this semester include regular updates to Sideline, getting to at least 10 book reviews inthe Joe Pickett Series, and keeping up with academics.

Other than studying, I spend my weekends relaxing while watching Youtube videos or hanging out with friends.

Faculty Adviser: Dr. William Davis

My first degrees are in literature, and I got my start in academia teaching English at the high school and college levels in the U.S. and Mexico. While pursuing my doctorate, I served as Managing Editor for Techné: Journal for the Society of Philosophy and Technology ( As a contributor, I have been a member of the Social Epistemology Review and Reply Collective ( since its inception and have had the opportunity to collaborate with scholars/writers from a variety of disciplines.

From this group of contributors, I continue to learn a great deal about writing, video, and audio production in a digital age.  

Sideline Contributers

Hey everyone! My name is Jashandeep Bajaj, and I am a current first-year in the 3+4 BS/MD program here at CHS. A few things that I like to do outside of school are reading, working out, and hanging out with friends. I would say that running has become a hobby of mine now due to the years I’ve spent in Cross Country and racing on the track.  Most recently, I have started to get into video editing and have tried to pick up a few things here and there on my own. One of my goals right now is to launch Sideline Studios, a dedicated digital multimedia and video platform that would be a part of our school newspaper platform. I look forward to being part of the Sideline team by sharing my experience and ideas in the forms of articles, podcasts, and videos.
