About

Just a scientist who likes to play make believe.

    I’m a physicist with a specialization in quantum physics.

    Apart from my academic pursuits, I dabble in the creative. Mostly, I write.

    But I also enjoy cosplay and acting, designing things that make people happy, and playing with my three beautiful cats.

  • Writer & Editor

    My writing expertize lies in creative, scientific, and technical styles. I am currently working on a number of creative writing projects from fictional stories to scriptwriting.

    I offer freelance writing and editing services for white papers, scientific papers, social media content, fiction, articles, and blog posts. Get in touch!

    I believe in the importance of science communication that is engaging, relatable, and accurate. In this regard, I contribute to Film Inquiry as a science columnist, have become the first science contributor to Indian news website The Quint, and consult on science fiction screenplays, books, and other entertainment/media projects.

    Founder, Sploosh Design

    Sploosh Design makes lifestyle items that reflect people’s obsessions such as popular culture, travel, pets, and coffee. I now play a more passive role; is currently being run by its Creative Director, artist BornFromBooks.

    It was originally founded as a creative outlet during my PhD years, but has fast become a fun family of creative nerds and fans. While it is a business, I do not treat it as such; my followers are a family, and I engage with them on a number of non-sales matters such as mental health, animals, and appreciating other artists. 

    Services include unique personal and corporate gifting solutions, graphic design, designing creative events, and building products for small, ethical brands.  Get in touch!

    I believe in the importance of good design and quality that leaves people excited. I also believe in functionality; Sploosh’s gift collections are bespoke, unique, and consist of relevant items useful to the recipient.

  • Scientific Consultant

    It is no secret that my head is in the clouds, and I absolutely love “believable unbelievability” when it comes to science fiction. The tv series, Doctor Who, for instance, is one of my favorite works of science fiction.

    I offer consulting services for sci-fi books and screenplays, as well as real-life science media projects. Get in touch!

    I believe in the importance of a positive, accurate representation of science in the world of entertainment and media. Science can be inspirational and beautiful. My fictional role models are Captain Kathryn Janeway from Star Trek, and Dr. Samantha Carter from Stargate.

    Poets say science takes away from the beauty of the stars – mere globs of gas atoms. I too can see the stars on a desert night, and feel them. But do I see less or more?…What men are poets who can speak of Jupiter if he were a man, but if he is an immense spinning sphere of methane and ammonia must be silent?” ~ Richard Feynman, Physicist
