Bhavna Kaveti is a science writer based in Hyderabad, India. She has a Masters in Pharmaceutical Chemistry from Vellore Institute of Technology, India, and a Ph.D. in Organic and Medicinal Chemistry from Universidad de Guanajuato, Mexico. Her research work involved designing and synthesizing heterocycle-based bioactive molecules, where she had exposure to both multistep and multicomponent synthesis. During her doctoral studies, she worked on synthesizing various linked and fused heterocycle-based peptidomimetic molecules that are anticipated to have a bioactive potential for further functionalization. While working on her thesis and research papers, she explored her passion for scientific writing and communications.
After her Ph.D., she returned to India and gained extensive experience in writing research and core chemistry content. She initially started working for an ed-tech company, where she developed engaging chemistry content for preuniversity students and later shifted to an online research publishing company and worked as a science writer. Her role entailed handling life science and chemical science manuscripts and converting them into scientifically accurate video scripts. She believes that video-audio publications can significantly impact current research dissemination. While her interests include writing for cutting-edge research, she is equally passionate about giving a bigger picture to the readers on applications of basic chemistry concepts. She believes that tailoring scientific communications based on the target audience is the key to good science writing.
Outside work, she loves reading books and binge-watching on Netflix. She especially enjoys the science videos by Jim-al-Khalili on Netflix. Additionally, she invests her time in learning Spanish and wants to explore her Spanish writing skills.
