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.
