SciComm Episode 28 – Interview with Meenakshi Prabhune
In SciComm episode 28, I am joined by Meenakshi Prabhune. Meenakshi is a biologist at heart with degrees in various interdisciplinary bio-related topics: BSc in Microbiology, MSc in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and PhD in Biophysics. Her PhD project involved designing tiny force sensors made out of DNA that can eventually be used to measure forces inside cells.
After her PhD, she ventured into SciComm. She writes a blog combining science and travel – https://backpackfullofquestions.com, simplifying science for a general audience. She also volunteers at the Exploratorium (science museum in San Francisco) for science outreach.
