Geetanjali Rangnekar completed a PhD (Medicine) at the University of Adelaide, with a research background in cardiac physiology. She formally worked as a researcher and clinical trials co-ordinator, investigating heart rhythm disorders and managing various clinical trials. She is a freelance publication support expert, working with Cactus Communications and Crimson Interactive. She is transitioning from the ‘publish or perish’ world of research and delving into the wonderful and at times scary world of science communication/journalism. When she isn’t marvelling at the wonders of science, she is usually cooking up a storm, Netflixing and contributing to South Australia’s economy through her wine connoisseur-ism!
Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
