Bhavana Kunkalikar

Bachelor of Pharmacy

Pharmaceutical Sciences, Pathophysiology

Bhavana Kunkalikar is a medical writer based in Goa, India. Her academic background is in Pharmaceutical sciences and she holds a Bachelor's degree in Pharmacy. Her educational background allowed her to foster an interest in anatomical and physiological sciences. Her college project work based on ‘The manifestations and causes of sickle cell anemia’ formed the stepping stone to a life-long fascination with human pathophysiology.

After completing her Bachelor’s degree, she gained considerable industrial experience in the maintenance and upkeep of finished retention samples and testing of water samples from across the manufacturing facility. However, in the wake of the pandemic, her passion for scientific writing urged her to take up more writing projects. She is now a full-time content writer at a digital marketing agency in Bengaluru, India. Her pursuit to expand her horizons led her to medical writing that allowed her to amalgamate her passion for writing with her academic background.  

Her childhood dream of becoming a writer, rooted in the fascination with fairy tales and mystery thrillers, led her to play the part of the College Magazine Secretary and undertake the responsibilities of editor-in-chief. This encouraged her to participate in various college-level story writing competitions and win a handful of them, resulting in some of her first pieces of fictional write-ups.

Outside of work, she is interested in reading and writing fiction, with Stephen King being her go-to writer to read and she aspires to discover and read more writers from the technical field. She also plays the keyboard for pleasure and is admittedly bad at it.
