Visual Research Communicator
Dr Lipsa (@imlipsa) holds a PhD in Respiratory Immunology from CSIR- Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology, Delhi. She has been awarded various fellowships right from her graduation, most prestigious being the Junior Scientist Award by the Delhi council of Science and Technology followed by an Indian Academy of Sciences Fellowship and CSIR- Junior, as well as a senior research fellowship. She went on to peruse her Postdoctoral fellowship with prestigious CSIR-Nehru Postdoctoral fellowship at CSIR- Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology, Hyderabad but realised her passion for visual scientific communication and decided to seek her passion to amalgamate science and art instead of a post-doctorate. She studied Graphic Design from Sri Aurobindo Centre for Arts and Communication, Delhi. In a very short duration, she has established herself among the science communicators of India, especially in the Delhi-NCR. Dr Lipsa conducts workshops to train science graduates and faculties on communicating science through visuals. She has also worked with various individual projects such as GARBH-InI, SOLID, TRISUTRA, NCBS, ELSEVIER’S and many more where she has created branding material such as logos, posters, infographics, and scientific art suitable for their work. Apart from national projects, she is currently consulting for I-DAIR (supported by Fondation Botnar and accompanied by Geneva Science & Diplomacy Anticipator Foundation (GESDA)).
