I dabble in creative writing from time-to-time. This more-often-than-not takes the form of short posts (on my truly ancient blog), but has also resulted in somewhat traditional publishing, for example in Daily Science Fiction and with Delhi Poetry Slam.
During my PhD, I also wrote a series of popular science articles for my institute’s science communication blog (since discontinued) but you can find them as well as my other science articles here.
For the last couple of years, I have been thinking about my location in science, as a visibly Muslim Indian woman, amidst the turbulent socio-political backdrop of my country (and the world) as well as physics’ well documented issues with retaining scientists from marginalised backgrounds. I wrote about it for McGill’s Education, Public Outreach, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion group’s zine on effective and inclusive science communication. You can read my piece, along with some exceptional reflections on what science communications means in the present day, by requesting a copy from EPOD.
