Hello and welcome!

My name is Laya Maheshwari. I am an Indian journalist and researcher currently living in Beijing. My journalism covers culture, society, and politics. My research extends beyond that, and delves into issues like communication strategies and foreign policy. One of my passions is education; here you'll find details of my personal research into textbooks and my institutional work on bettering science journalism in classrooms.

I hope you like what you see. But regardless of whether you do, feel free to get in touch with me. I'm always up for a conversation, be it bonding over a common interest or listening to constructive criticism. You can also follow me on Twitter, if for some reason you'd like to hear more from me (what?).

I hope you enjoy your time here!
