A postdoctoral researcher at Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria, I use ultra-sensitive microscopy to understand the inner workings of the brain.  I completed my PhD from Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai, in the area of Neuroscience and Biophysics. During my PhD, I won the EURAXESS Science Slam competition organized by the European Union and got an opportunity to represent India in Europe. Science writing and communication is my favorite pastime. I maintain a personal science blog and have blogged for TIFR in the past. I find ecstasy in reading philosophy, climbing mountains and travelling. I am also deeply interested in traditional and alternative system of medicine and comparative religion.
