I am an independent science communicator, journalist, and author. After working at The Hindu and Brainwave magazine, I co-founded the feminist science multimedia platform The​Life​of​Science​.com which covers the research and journeys of underrepresented groups in Indian science, and reports on issues of access and inequity that exist within the STEM community. I have also helped set up a children’s library in Mangalore, where I coordinated several virtual reading-based activities for children during the lockdowns. My work has been published on platforms such as The Wire, Firstpost, ThePrint, Mongabay-India and Caravan. I have along the way authored a few children’s books, the latest being The World that Mai Built (Pratham Books), Rathna and the Ring of Fire (Pratham Books), 31 Fantastic Adventures in Science (co-authored by Aashima Dogra; Puffin Books), and Anna’s Extraordinary Experiments with Weather (Pratham Books). I love bird watching, trying out different kinds of food and I have a burgeoning interest in natural building.
