I am in strong favour of promoting public understanding of science and believe it to be particularly relevant in a developing country like India, where a career in science is often looked down upon. I want to communicate science, alongside pursuing scientific research, through jargon-less scientific writing, talking and teaching. Here are some samples.
Radboud talks 2019
Radboud talks is a 3-minute pitch competition where researchers from all disciplines narrate their research stories for live audience and a jury of science communication experts. No presentation slides, no charts and graphs, just story.
I ended up winning the 2019 competition for which, I received 1000 euros as personal science communication budget. Here’s my pitch during the preliminaries.
It’s easy to get occupied in doing research and not stop to enjoy the process. So, I started making a series of YouTube videos about how researchers got interested in the field of neuroscience. While I hope neuroscientists find these interesting, I also hope that someone stumbling upon one such video might find the field absolutely fascinating too.
Here is the latest video in which, I talk to Mr. Theta (aka Dr. Mike X Cohen).
Every now and then, I try to write blogposts about concepts that I find interesting. One such post about how flawed of planning can be, appeared on Donders Wonders blog.

I also jot down my thoughts on my own blog: metadata
