I am a science-educator and researcher. I started my journey in the area of recreational Science Education designing simple toys and activities that can be used to elicit scientific concepts. Later, I got interested in Makerspaces and worked closely with groups that are exploring challenges and possibilities to bring maker-focussed education to mainstream education.
Currently, I am working in LSR group to deepen my understanding of the nature of Makerspaces(MS) practices from the Embodied Cognition perspective. I also enjoy being part of outreach endeavours in the area of science communication.
