I am an advocate for open science, disability, children, and youth's educational rights and those with lived experiences. My involvement with UNICEF initiatives and Lancet Adolescent and Youth Groups are my experiences in working towards advocating for the above. I am a proud co-founder of two open science initiatives, #Dev-ersity in academia (DIA) and the founder, Project USPAS (Underrepresented Students of Psychology & Allied Sciences). These initiatives are aimed at bridging together opportunities and creating access to resources around the Psychological & allied sciences as well as underrepresented researchers around the globe, especially those from developing countries to increase diversity and representation in research.
I regularly update a section on my website of the different acceptance and rejection lists of a variety of opportunities I have applied to in academia or related (why, do I do that? Celebrate small wins and transparency of the process). Apart from academics, I am also a freelance writer and photographer and occasionally a singer by hobby (well, a few know about it). When I am not working or actively scrolling through Twitter (X), I am most of the time binge-watching TV series and movies (Currently binging the Marvel Cinematic Universe & The Office).
I love capturing memories of non-academic & academic milestones of my life and updating all of those on my memories page and my sci-comm Instagram page or my Twitter feed. Feel free to glance through it, it's a virtual mini-museum of what some of the tiny good moments of my life are and have been.
Feel free to reach out to me via Email/Twitter with any questions, potential collaborations or just to chit-chat about any of the above :) | I love talking to and helping fellow international students in navigating academia to the best of my capacity. In the spirit of navigating and understanding the academic community on Twitter, I also have slides/materials made for International students to form a base for exploring the academic Twitter community and or navigating it.
