About

Freelance writer based in San Diego, California, formerly of Bangalore, India. These days, I write while my year-old daughter is asleep.

I have a full list of my non-fiction writings here. Most of what I have written has to do with science, the environment and conservation, but I also write about cities, and all their contradictory parts.

A partial list of some of the essays I’ve had the most fun researching / writing…

I also write fiction. (Lately, in 100 word snippets. Sometimes longer.)

More autobiographical things: I have a BA from Bryn Mawr College (Bryn Mawr, PA, USA) where I wrote about creativity and the mind for my senior thesis with the late, wonderful Paul Grobstein. I have an MS from Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (Bangalore, India) where I studied population dynamics in fruit flies under the amazing Amitabh Joshi. I also studied environmental history at the University of California at Irvine, where reading a combination of Marx, Foucault, Benedict Anderson and Timothy Mitchell in a very short amount of time sent little earthquakes through my mind which I’m still figuring out today.

Other places to find me on the internet: I sporadically post on Twitter and Facebook, and try to keep Porterfolio updated with all the non-fiction I publish.
