Oh, hello. Welcome.
My name is Rashmi Shivni, and I'm a science and technical writer. I love science and always had broad interests in STEM fields. This is primarily why I started my career as a science journalist. In the past, I reported on particle physics experiments, veterinary medicine, microbiology research, and astrophysical discoveries. As a storyteller, I often report on these hard sciences using narratives about the characters in the lab, in the field or at the microscope. In all honesty though, my true passion is astronomy and cosmology: Not only do I want to build my scientific literacy and write more about interplanetary, interstellar and life origins topics, I hope to someday pursue a degree in astrobiology and contribute to the field.
Beyond my overall passion for STEM, I always want to improve my skills as a reporter and try different modes of storytelling. At the internships and freelance work I completed so far, I've gained tons of experience reformatting STEM stories into videos, photo essays, and social media stories. Usually, I package my stories using many, if not all, of these platforms at once to provide multiple perspectives.
When I'm not busy writing and reporting, you can find me consuming foreign media while sipping exotic teas, binging on obscure, complex music or snuggling with my kitties, Sunny and Mona. :3
Please feel free to peruse my portfolio. I am always open to collaboration on art, writing, and science projects. You can find my contact information on my "résumé" page.
