Hey I am Ameya 'ExEcutE' Vaidya. I am currently undertaking a PhD in Detection of Waterborne Pathogens using Microfluidics at Heriot-Watt University, UK. I have been investigating the role of nanoparticles in lysis of Cryptosporidium, a protozoan pathogen which can cause problems in immunocompromised patients around the world and has been the second biggest cause of waterborne outbreaks throughout the world. It is also my goal to find ways to detecting Cryptosproidium in drinking water in a shorter time-frame and using cheaper techniques and small sample volumes.

When I am not working on PhD, I run and present a show called Sodium Flying Circus with my friend. The aim of the show is to 'Stay Curious. Keep Questioning'. My friend and I had to discontinue the project due to logistical challenges with us not living in the same location. I hope you visit the channel and enjoy the content we made as much as we enjoyed making it. We are currently in discussions regarding the format and style and we hope to start up the Circus once more with even more answers and questions.

Recently, I have been travelling a lot as well and so, I have discovered music from many different places for different themes. I hope you enjoy my Spotify playlists. :) Have a good one.
