Internship at BioTechniques
Currently, I am honing my writing skills through a Science Journalism internship at BioTechniques magazine. Here are the links to my latest articles:
- Is it over? Organizers predict the impact of the Science March on policy: http://www.biotechniques.com/news/The-Science-March-Is-Resistance-Futile/biotechniques-365834.html#.WQeNvdIrK00
- What does the Zika virus do to a cell? http://www.biotechniques.com/news/Time-for-a-Makeover-Says-Zika/biotechniques-365813.html#.WP4m09IrK00
I was lucky to be interviewed for few podcasts, which are a fast-growing medium of science communication.
- My interview on the show Goggles Optional, which airs on KZSU Stanford radio, was an exciting and new experience. Here’s a link to the recording of my first radio experience: http://gogglesoptional.com/episode-171-backpacks-optional/
- The ‘Actual living scientist’ hashtag went viral on Twitter, when scientists started posting their pics at work to show America (and the world) what a scientist looks like and does. In the spirit of this noble cause, I was interviewed about my work for a podcast series: https://www.drmikeographer.co.uk/podcast/scicomm-episode-28-interview-meenakshi-prabhune/
