Writing Portfolio

My articles have collectively had more than 1.5 million views in the past three years.

 

My writing spans creative non-fiction writing, copywriting, and scientific publications. As a researcher, I was struck by the lack of connection between science and the general public. Scientists work hard on research for years and publish papers, which are then seldom used. Many stakeholders, on the other hand, remain unaware of crucial advances because they cannot understand the scientific jargon used in academic papers. As a freelancer, I resolved to bridge the void between this need and vast sources of information.

I use my scientific background in my writing to explain complex phenomena or provide solutions to many of the urgent environmental challenges the world faces.

Creative Non-fiction Writing

In the last four years, I have created content for over 200 + articles and blog posts, based on information gathered from peer-reviewed papers and technical reports. The articles were for two online publications, and the blog posts were B2B and B2C web-content. I have also written college-level educational modules and white papers for private enterprises. Sources are cited or provided as links based on the reference styles preferred by the publishers.

Online Publications

The two online publications I have written for are LoveToKnow (LTK), and Wordatlas.

For LTK, I have written 75 articles for three channels Green Living, Organics, and Herbs.

Geography, countries, organic farming, national parks, etc. are the themes covered in the 39 articles and listicles written for Worldatlas. The two sample pieces for this publication are,

B2B and B2C

CID Bio-Science, Desjardin, AgriKinetics, Lumenari, etc. are the private companies for whom I have written B2B and B2C content. In most cases, this is creative articles. Samples of blog posts I have written are,

Of the three peer-reviewed articles on tropical forests, two are published in international journals, Wiley and Oxford University Press.
