About Me

I currently work in pharma comms at Virgo Health, a healthcare communications and PR company. I have a master’s degree in Science Communication from Imperial College London and a bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry and Cell Biology from Jacobs University, Bremen, Germany. Previously, I served as the chief executive officer of Journal of Young Investigators, a student-run journal for undergraduates around the world.

I love science and I love writing, and I try to bring these two fields closer through my work. I believe that art and science are not as different as usually perceived and I strive to find examples of this amalgamation in our daily lives. Additionally, I quite enjoy digital media marketing – learning about social media ad campaigns and the creative thought processes that make them possible.

Beyond my job, and all the reading that I do, I love rambling about Pop Culture and how it shapes public behaviour, and why the opinions of teenage girls matter. I also love cooking, traveling with my family, bullet journaling, and learning everything I possibly can about penguins.

Not that this bio needs it, but when it comes to daily motivation, I look to novelist Jodi Picoult, astrophysicist Carl Sagan and, as cheesy as it sounds, my lovely mother.

This website is part-portfolio, part-ramblings and all-passion. I hope you enjoy what I write. Drop me a message anytime you like!

Cheerio, Ushashi x
