Renuka Kudva, PhD

Project Coordinator, NGI

I’m currently a Project Coordinator at NGI after a research career in the wet lab during my PhD and postdoc. I’ll cover my inspiration to study biology, my experience navigating a research career as an immigrant scientist with an unseen disability, how impostor syndrome can sometimes be a good thing, and why I think science communication is closely intertwined with diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Host: Alejandro Rodríguez Gijón

Moderator: Rebecca Howard
