Salamanders, crickets and zebrafish: Bittu’s journey in science (and gender)

An evolutionary neuroscientist and a transman, Bittu R. takes us through his journey in science and the experience of being an activist and a scientist at the same time.

By Sayantan Datta and Upasana Agarwal

Note: It’s vital to realise that the narrative of gender-based discrimination in the sciences has been limited to cis-women in science. This post is part of a series of posts (we call this the ‘transgender persons in science mini-series’) that hopes to dismantle the invisibilisation that transgender persons in science go through.

The first in the series features Bittu R., an associate professor of biology and psychology at Ashoka University, Haryana. The conversation between Bittu and TheLifeofScience.com’s Sayantan Datta is brought to life by Upasana Agarwal’s illustrations.

    This is very well done. I’ll have my Master and PhD students read it in my epistemology course (Québec, Canada).

    Link exchange is nothing else however it is simply placing the other person’s weblog link on your page at suitable place and
    other person will also do similar in support of you.
