I have finished BS-MS in Physics from IISER, Thiruvananthapuram and am currently working as a project fellow at the institute in the field of Quantum Information Theory.

As someone interested in scientific pursuits as well as writing, popular science writing interests me with its twin achievements, informing society to gradually bring about a general scientific temperament being the obvious among them. Equally important, I believe, is the sense of inspiration that comes from learning about the scientific progress we have made as a civilization and the scale of technology we are today capable to wield.
