Thanks for visiting. I am Padma, a Delhi-based science, environment, health and development journalist.I currently write for Nature, Physics World, BioWorld, New Scientist, India Climate Dialogue and Third Pole Net.
I am currently on a five-month Journalist-in-Residence Programme at the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS), which began on 15 February, 2017.
Previously, I was the first South Asia regional head at SciDev.Net, ran development communication projects at Panos Institute South Asia and was a science correspondent at Press Trust of India (PTI).
Here are collations of some of my previous conference blogs, which I am adding as links. The blogs deal with deliberations on diverse topics, from climate change to to Rio+20 to HIV, Euro Science Open Forum (ESOF) and World Conference of Science Journalists (WCSJ).
I will keep updating with random science snippets, usually about environment but also other topics, meetings and conference musings. I love my travel boots that go with my profession.
