Writer, Translator


I am an engineer who is currently doing a PhD in Biology. Science has been my ally and friend since childhood which has eventually defined and designed my passion. I was always curious to understand how nature has sculpted the world we live in. I am currently working in an ecology lab at IISER Thiruvananthapuram where I am trying to explore the visual ecology of fruit bats.

Other than this, I am always interested in reading classical tamil literature and it has seeded me the inspirations of becoming a writer. World class poetry like Thirukkural has shown me the importance of explaining complex things in a short and sweet way. It also made me understand the impact of good writing on the society.

With this being said, I am here to try creating a bridge between hard core scientists and the common man. As Charlie Chaplin once said "Let us fight for a world where science and progress will lead to all men's happiness", I feel its my duty to make science  a tool for achieving universal brotherhood. I hope I will do justice to this purpose with my science writing.
