I am a PhD Candidate in Science Communication and Cognition at the Cognition and SciComm Lab (formerly Social Cognition Lab) under Dr V.V. Binoy at the National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS), IISc Bengaluru campus. My doctoral research work is on 'Determinants of Protective Action Decision Making during Cyclones: a study of India'. Apart from my thesis, you can find me working on organising as well as participating in workshops and meetings associated with Science Communication.
An amalgam of the scientific approach & an understanding of the aesthetics of art, being engaged with multifarious activities at any given time, I try to pitch in my dedication & originality efficiently. At the end of the day, all that I am trying to do is live up to the meaning of my name - The Best.
I am also associated with various groups and platforms such as iSWAN, Women in STEM Research India (WISR), Indian Scientist Response to Covid-19 (ISRC), SciCommSci Journal Club, Bengaluru and Science Policy Forum (a group having members from various institutions and centres, with support from DST Centre for Policy Research at IISc).
