Arti Dumbrepatil desires to positively impact people’s lives by helping them to redefine science by being inclusive, accessible, and fun-filled. As an immigrant, first-generation woman in science who grew up with her single mother in a remote village in India, she found navigating academic life is like walking blindfolded in a forest. Early in her life while exploring insects in the garden she was wowed by science, and now she helps others find their wow in science with her science writing. During her Ph.D. and postdoctoral research in enzymology, she learned that good communication is the key to making others understand science. She loves to apply her content development skills to help others share their research. She is also a mom, and it gives her immense pleasure when her toddler says “FUN” looking at a mushroom after listening to her stories related to “FUNgi”. She believes that anyone can be a scientist as long as they are not bogged down by science.
