About

Hello, world! My name is Vasudevan Mukunth. I live in and am from Chennai, India.

I’ve been a science blogger for a decade and a science journalist for half. My bylines have appeared in The Hindu, Quartz, Hindustan Times, Scroll and Physics World. I’m currently the science editor of The Wire. The links to all my articles are available here. I like learning and writing about high-energy physics, cosmology and materials science.

This blog used to be on WordPress.com under the name Gaplogs. On January 5, 2018, I moved out and setup a self-hosted WordPress site. The new name for the blog is Serotonergic (after serotonin, the neurotransmitter). The archives here date back to March 2012, when I started taking science blogging seriously. I will shut Gaplogs down on February 1, 2018. I’ve discussed why I moved here.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog. If you’d like to say hi, leave a comment below or tweet me @1amnerd. Cheers!
