I am a research scientist turned science communicator. I'm a PhD in Nuclear Chemistry. After having done post-doctoral research for 3 years I have now decided to change careers and become a science communicator. I love all branches of science and I'm passionate about making the common folk aware of what science does for them right from their day-to-day lives to the sophisticated technology that makes the world go round. I am specifically interested in chemistry for the obvious reason that I am a chemist myself. I was very excited to learn that 2011 had been designated the International Year of Chemistry by the UN. I would love to play my part as a science communicator to the best of my ability in order to spread awareness and interest about chemistry amongst one and all.
