I am a Masters student in Physics at IISc. I am drawn to science writing by my own interest and by the opportunity to know about the research and the people doing it in the campus. Apart from writing press releases of journal papers, I am interested in doing longer stories covering current research in labs, profiling professors, students, etc. I am an avid reader and an amateur runner.
