Discussion on Science Journalism

Vasudevan Mukunth

The Wire

Mukunth will be speaking about journalism, the forces that define how and what news is produced, how things work inside the newsroom, and specifically about science journalism, the unique problems with communicating science, and if the profession can be an alternate career path for trained scientists.

Note: The session won't be a talk as much as an AMA; (any and all) questions from the audience will define how the conversation goes.

Vasudevan Mukunth is the science editor at The Wire. He has written for Physics World, Hindustan Times, The Hindu, Scroll and Quartz, with a focus on high-energy physics, cosmology and spaceflight. Twitter: @1amnerd.
