Hi ! Welcome to my creative workspace

I am a full-time freelance journalist, science writer and a travel blogger, based out of Shillong, India. With five years of reporting experience, I specialise in writing about diverse subjects such as science, health, climate change, heritage, food, sustainability, and how they intersect with travel, architecture and anthropology.

My reported features can be found in The New York Times, National Geographic, Nature Medicine, The Guardian, BBC Travel, Smithsonian Magazine, The British Medical Journal, Travel+ Leisure, The National UAE, Nikkei Asia, Hakai Magazine, South China Morning Post , Architectural Digest, BBC Future, among many other digital and print publications.
