Akshaya R.

I'm a fourth year student at UC Davis, studying neurobiology, trying to find a balance between science and writing.

I have an unhealthy amount of love for TV, coffee and the UK, and I spend as much time as possible talking and writing about pop cullture and dreaming about one day living in New York City.

Just as I'm torn between science and art, as an immigrant, I'm torn between India and America. Travelling has consistently been a part of my life and this has allowed me to live in five amazing countries, India, Vietnam, Thailand, Scotland and the US.

I was a reporter for the campus desk of the California Aggie for two years.

I currently cohost a podcast called Pop Culture Coffee Break with Rajiv Narayan.
