What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your research.
I am currently an ICMR-Senior Research Fellow and pursuing a PhD in cancer biology. My research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying cancer progression and identifying novel therapeutic targets for cancer treatment.
Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?
I am passionate about science communication and open science. As a researcher, I believe that it is essential to share our research findings openly and transparently with the broader scientific community and the general public. I am excited to learn new skills and strategies for effective science communication and to connect with other like-minded researchers through this program.
What are you excited about in science communication?
I am excited about the potential of science communication to bridge the gap between researchers and the general public and to promote a better understanding of science and its impact on society. I believe that effective science communication can help build trust between scientists and the public and increase public engagement in science.
Ask me about…
Apart from academia, I am associated with some NGOs like PETA and Goonj for volunteering work as a way to give back to the community and to support causes that I am passionate about. Also, I love to play basketball which is a fun and challenging way to stay active, improve coordination and reflexes, and socialize with others who share a love of the game.
