I am a queer-trans science writer, communicator and journalist; generally, I write about science, gender, sexuality, caste and health.
Currently, I am a Faculty Teaching Associate in the Centre for Writing and Pedagogy at Krea University, Andhra Pradesh, where I teach Writing and Oral Communication to enthusiastic undergraduate students. I am also a part of the feminist multimedia science collective TheLifeofScience.com.
My tryst with journalism began in 2010, while I was still in school, when I started working with The Times of India - Newspaper in Education (ToI-NIE) and The Telegraph in Schools (TTIS). Since then, my work has been featured in Gaylaxy Magazine, Feminism in India, Kafila, The Raiot, The Wire Science, Economic and Political Weekly, IndiaBioScience.org, TheLifeofScience.com, The Swaddle and Scientific American.
I have also published a peer-reviewed paper, and my book chapter, “Finding (Homo)Sexuality in the Genome: A Critique of Genetic Investigations on Sexuality”, has been published in “Sexuality, Abjection and Queer Existence in Contemporary India” (2021), a volume edited by Pushpesh Kumar and published by Routledge.
Moreover, I have been invited to give public talks at various forums, including the Sambhaavanaa Institute, Palampur, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Bhopal, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur, Ashoka University, Microsoft, Anveshi Centre for Women’s Studies, DE Shaw and Co, University of Hyderabad.
