  • C.V. Raman, in full Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman, (born November 7, 1888,  Trichinopoly, India—died November 21, 1970, Bangalore), Indian physicist whose work was influential in the growth of science in India. He was the recipient of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1930 for the discovery that when lighttraverses a transparent material, some of the light that is deflected changes in wavelength. This phenomenon is now called Raman scattering and is the result of the Raman effect. After earning a master’s degree in physics at Presidency College, University of Madras, in 1907, Raman became an accountant in the finance department of the Indian government. He became professor of physics at the University of Calcuttain 1917. Studying the scattering of light in various substances, in 1928 he found that when a transparent substance is illuminated by a beam of light of one frequency, a small portion of the light emerges at right angles to the original direction, and some of this light is of different frequencies than that of the incident light. These so-called Raman frequencies are the energies associated with transitions between different rotational and vibrational states in the scattering material.Raman was knighted in 1929, and in 1933 he moved to the Indian Institute of Science, at Bangalore, as head of the department of physics. In 1947 he was named director of the Raman Research Institute there and in 1961 became a member of the Pontifical Academy of Science. He contributed to the building up of nearly every Indian research institution in his time, founded the Indian Journal of Physics and the Indian Academy of Sciences, and trained hundreds of students who found important posts in universities and government in India and Myanmar (Burma). He was the uncle of Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, who won the 1983 Nobel Prize for Physics, with William Fowler. . .#scientificsaturdays  #cvraman  #ramaneffect  #tamilscientist  #tamilan  #prideoftamilnadu  #information  #facts  #tamilassociation  #sies

  • GRAMMER 2019! Yo, I won the first, best paper prize! 😁 In the picture, Prof. David Sedlak, Environmental Engineer, University of California. 1st Graduate Symposium on Marine Environmental Research (GRAMMER'19) is a graduate student organised symposium (happened last week, 12th March, late post, because I just got the picture😜). The symposium was supported by State Key Laboratory of Marine Pollution (SKLMP, Hong Kong). Looking back, I feel like I have improved my presentation skills over time, since I joined PhD. Before coming out of India, I used to think, "OMG, I am not a native English speaker, I am no way comparable to native speakers, no matter how hard I try, it's their mother tongue!" I am a trained public speaker in my mother tongue (Tamil) since middle school, however, speaking in English, I was never that confident! However, after coming out of India, I have changed my perception. I have developed my confidence in presenting science, in English! I don't consider myself a pro-presenter, however here are certain things I follow while making slides for any presentation: 1) The audience - knowing the audience helps in tailor making introduction, to decide the extent of simplification required. 2) Time limit - to decide the amount of content. 3) The storyline or the flow: This includes deciding what goes first, second, third and so on. Choosing the important data that is required to support the story. i.e the most important finding. Definitely it is impossible to present all the data you have! 4) Color or theme: I prefer black text, white background and blue for text highlights. I think it is better to use few colors. 5) Animations: I like using the "appear" animation in my slides as it helps in getting the focus to what I am talking as I click! 6) Practice: No matter how much experienced you are, it is always best to practice. This helps in efficient time management and in adding or removing few slides. Hope this helps, is anything missing here?

  • Educating young underpriviledged girls: One of my goals is to motivate underpriviledged young girls. To make them take education as a tool for climbing the ladder up. I want to do this, because I have seen how education has impacted the lives of under previledged. My dad being from a poor family, took education seriously, as a result, I am living a previledged life today. Girls/women become victims of domestic violence and stay quiet as they do not have the strength to speak up as they are dependent on others financially. Educating young girls from underpriviledged communities is an important step in development of these communities, in making them independent financially and strong, I believe. It doesn't mean educating male children is not important, don't get me wrong. Yesterday I visited a girls only orphanage in my home town and got to motivate these young girls about "setting goals and working towards the set goals". They do not have what I had as a kid, they need to wait for some one to come to their orphanage to donate them a 'good' meal, to show some love and encourage them. I heard from their caretaker that these girls don't continue their education after high school, how can they? When they have to worry about the next meal, how can they continue education? Especially when girl children are seen as burden in the society and educating them is seen as wastage of resources! I share this experience here, so that someone reading this may understand why it is important to share what we have with others, to be there for others and not be solely self-centred. My tool for empowerment is #science  #education , which makes you question, "why, what and how" for everything, when your community trains you to not ask questions and stay quiet, especially when you are a girl. Thanks to my fiancé @_santhoshselvam_  for helping me to organise this and standing beside me. #empowerment  #womeninscience  #science  #phdlife  #kanmani_science  #indianwomeninscience  #womenempowerment  #girlpower  #stemgirls  #sivakasi  #tamilgirl  #tamilwomeninscience  #tamilscientist  #scienceeducation

  • Progress: Doing science or research, sometimes (all the time) feels like there is very little progress! There is always a constant question in mind, "is this meaningful information or knowledge that I am producing!?" It's hard to believe that I have finished a task even after I finished doing it! I tackle this by the fact that I am learning something new everyday and I grow as a person by trying new things. It might look like there is no impact, but it is okay. After all, the point is I am trying, I am working on what I am curious about. This picture is from today's (full day) session at Electron Microscopy Unit at HKU. Hope you had an awesome Monday as well 🤗#phdlife  #phd  #kanmani_chandrarajan  #HKU  #hku_graduate  #hongkong  #china  #ebsd  #research  #science  #stress  #progress  #womeninscience  #indianwomeninscience  #indianscientists  #tamilscientist  #tamilgirl  #tamilwomeninscience

I couldn't post pictures as I got so "into" the SEM - EBSD (Scanning Electron Microscopy - Electron Backscatter Diffraction) workshop that I am organising from Jan 21 - 31, 2019 at HKU. This is my lab mate James getting excited as he got to cut shell samples in the "world's number 1- faculty of dentistry" at the University of Hong Kong. Haha, it is good to have lab friends who can cheer you up like James. This picture made my long day!

  • Stress management🤗: I have completed two years of PhD and I already am a master in overthinking, which leads to stress. This piece in the HKU review 2018 is indeed a boost at this stage. I hope, I successfully complete this project in 2019 and make a very good progress towards my third year end. When I get stressed, I do the following: 1) Take a break from work for few hours or a day, talk to my family and friends. 2) I have a folder where I keep newsletters, degree certificates, previously received awards etc. No matter how small the achievement might be, I look back and appreciate it. 3) Identify the problem, the source of my stress. Usually it will be something like, not spending enough time on work, not meeting a deadline or an approaching deadline. Or overthinking about how something that I have already finished doing might not be "good enough". 4) Plan my time, writing down what tasks should be prioritised. I don't like spending so much time working. So, I try to avoid working more than 8 hours a day. (Though I try to plan everyday, it sometimes gets messed up. I don't finish certain tasks, so writing and planning all over again helps in prioritising things) 5) Executing the tasks on my list. I start with small tasks and go to bigger ones. This helps in feeling accomplished. 6) Eat a very good Indian meal 💕😋 These steps usually reduce my stress. And I try to tell myself, "If I do not finish this task, no one is gonna kill me, I will still be loved by family and friends" (lol, that sounds stupid while writing it, but, that's what I tell inside my mind). What do you do to manage your stress?#stressmanagement #phdlife  #phd  #HKU  #womeninscience  #indianwomeninscience  #tamilscientist  #tamilgirl  #tamilwomeninscience  #oysters #review  #2018  #success  #failure  #stress

  • ❤️Diary - Goals, accomplishments and failure❤️ Since I was in middle school, I have the habit of writing diary. It is funny to read my diary back from middle or high school. It includes things like exams, homeworks, fights with mom and dad, complaining about teachers and fantasising about love. And, I can clearly see how my thoughts have evolved over time. When I was in undergrad college, I started making year goals and accomplishment lists every year end. I would write briefly what I want to achieve academically, every year. Now, I also include personal goals such as health, reading habit, family, other than academic research goals (I divide into categories). And, I narrate certain incidents that happen like a story (I love writing stories, especially in #tamil , my mother tongue). Of course, it is not possible to achieve all the set goals, but, it is good to make a list. This helps in focusing and also in balancing personal and professional goals. It feels like playing a game where you try to complete certain tasks. One key thing I try to follow is thinking, "what I am doing is not important". Yes! I find that I get stressed, only when I start to think, "my work is changing the world" (especially, when you are doing research). It might!? However, in this universe, the impact that I create is so tiny, it is not good to think that my research or work is "special" to make a change. But it is important to continue to try and contribute my best. How do you start and end your year? Do you think, maintaining a diary helps you? How long have you been writing diary? Do you find your childhood diary, funny?

  • 😯Oxidative stress-Reductive stress-anti-oxidants: We often talk about role of oxidative stress in diseases, particularly, cardiovascular diseases. And, how berries contain lots of anti-oxidants. Today, I had a chance to listen to a really cool talk by Dr Raj from University of Albama, Birmingham. His research is on understanding how reductive stress causes cardiovascular diseases. 📍Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are produced by our normal metabolism. Our body also has an antioxidative stress response system to fight the oxidative stress, caused by excess production of ROS. 📍Often, environmental factors (for example: UV) can lead to over production of reactive oxygen species. This leads to various diseases including cardiovascular diseases. Antioxidants are used for treating these diseases. 🌴 Now, what is reductive stress? Imagine you take an overdose of the antioxidant, your system will undergo, reductive stress, which is the exact opposite of oxidative stress, you will not have the healthy dose of reactive oxygen species or the oxidative state required for normal cell signaling. This also causes cardiovascular disease. 📍When this reductive state occurs due to mutation of important genes (by birth genetic defect or acquired mutation) that are involved in maintaining the redox (reduction-oxidation) homeostasis (balance), it also leads to heart diseases. If we do not understand the actual molecular cause and treat all the cardiovascular disease patients with anti-oxidants assuming oxidative stress causes the heart problem, imagine how bad it will be! This area of reductive stress research is emerging and also under debate with many scientists criticising this idea. However, I find it really exciting!

Agars are not always used to just grow bacteria but can be used to to select and differentiate between them. Different agars use different formulas. As you can see in the second image, the bacteria uses the sugars in the agar through a process called fermentation that results in that bright orange colour. In the third image, chromogens are used to help differentiate between Escherichia coli (pink) and Klebsiella pneumoniae (blue).

The two strains that were used are Carbapenamase Producing Organisms which are extremely resistant and can be difficult to treat! #lab  #science  #labrat  #tamil  #tamilscientist  #scientist  #microbiology  #labscience  #micro  #bacteria  #ecoli  #lab  #medlab  . .#labart  Artist: @jolu70

  • Our blood culture analyzers incubate blood from patients until they alarm positive with organisms such as bacteria and/or yeast. A healthy person should not have any organisms in their bloodstream, but sometimes people get sick and bacteria can enter their blood, resulting in bacteremia. Our goal is to identify these organisms and perform antibiotic testing to help eliminate these bugs out of our patients’ bloodstreams! #lab  #labrat  #microbiology  #tamilscientist  #science  #bacteria  #tamil  #scientist  #savinglives  #medlab

  • The last 36 hours have been the most traumatic in my life, as some would say a “near death experience”. Not a minute goes by where I don’t replay that event in my mind. If there’s anything I’ve learned from this incident, it’s that life is short and we have to make the best of it! For me, part of living my best life is to give my best to others. I take pride in the work we do in the laboratory! 🥰#lab  #tamil  #scientist  #labrat  #microbiology  #tamilscientist  #laboratory  #happiness  #love  #career  #womeninscience  #yolo  #livingmybestlife

  • This is the #10yearchallenge  for bacteria as they continue to mutate and evolve into indestructible microorganisms! 🦠. . This is what antimicrobial testing looks like. Put a bug on a Petri dish along with antibiotic discs and see how far they grow up to the disc. A large inhibition zone around a disc means that the bacteria is sensitive to that antibiotic (as seen on the left)! . Moral of the story: always 👏🏽 finish 👏🏽 your 👏🏽 course 👏🏽 of 👏🏽 antibiotics 👏🏽 to ensure that the bacteria doesn’t mutate and develop resistance mechanisms! We’ll soon run out of meds to treat you! 😳#bacteria  #resistance  #antibiotics  #science  #tamilscientist  #microbiology

  • Hard Tissue (bones, teeth): I went to the Prince Philip Dental Hospital today, not to get my teeth checked but to use their hard tissue lab. I used their facility to cut the embedded oyster shells (previous post). I study invertebrate Biomineralisation and the techniques used are very similar to human Biomineralisation. I would like to use inspiration from invertebrate biomineralisation to solve human biomineralisation problems. This is a very new emerging interdisciplinary research area, which makes it special and difficult at the same time. Though my PhD goal is different, I have learnt so much about biomineralisation in the past two years. I hope I can work in the special interdisciplinary area of #biomimetics  later in my research career, after PhD. Do you like the magic word #interdisciplinary ? haha, everyone wants to do interdisciplinary research these days, isn't it?

  • Playing Science (my perception): It might look like doing Science is an extremely tough job, but, trust me, it need not be. I consider my lab as my play area, whatever I do, I want to enjoy doing it. There are tough times, but I try to look at things in a positive light. This is me, playing in my lab with epoxy resins. (or am I never gonna finish my PhD with this attitude? Haha) I use epoxy resins to embed oyster shells from my ocean acidification experiments, later, I will cut and polish them to observe the microstructural changes using scanning electron microscopy. What is your way of doing science or your work? Fun or do you get serious about it? PS: I did the embedding overnight yesterday, so its okay to pose with free hair, lol #staysafeinlab  #womeninscience  #science  #phdlife  #kanmani_science  #indianwomeninscience  #mould  #embeding  #resin  #science  #phd  #tamilgirl  #tamilscientist  #stemgirls  #oysters  #kanmani_science  #kanmani_chandrarajan

  • Human evolution: Today I had fun doing lab demonstration about human evolution using skull models of various human ancestors. The specimen in this picture is the skull of Homo neanderthalis. Neanderthals are my favorite ancestors. Why!? The reason is so lame. It is because I watched a science fiction called "ambuli", a Tamil, South Indian movie which talks about a scientist doing experiments with neanderthal DNA. This movie made me curious and I started reading about human evolution though my biotechnology curriculum didn't include human evolution. I never thought that I would be teaching the fascinating human evolution to undergrads at HKU. Life is extremely interesting 😃 I, originally, am a Biotechnology student who now studies oyster Biomineralisation (biologically controlled mineralisation process). I hope to get inspiration from oyster Biomineralisation for solving complex vertebrate or human Biomineralisation. Yes, there is similarity in the molecular mechanisms between oysters and humans! How cool is it? There are studies which shows how oyster shell proteins can help in differentiation of bone cells. This field, where one get inspiration from non human models for solving complex human problems is called biomimetics. Let's see where my research journey takes me 🤞 Fun facts: 1) Our prominent nose (unlike many primates with just a hole) helps us to "condition" the air that we breathe in. This successfully evolved nose, helps us in keeping the air warm and humid enough to avoid damaging delicate lining of our lungs. 2) Our dental arcade has evolved too. We have small molars comparing ancestors. Thanks to the development of our brain which lead to improved skills of making hunting or culinary tools and food processing techniques. This advancement reduces the need for strong jaw and big molars.#hku  #science  #womeninscience  #phdlife  #teaching  #neanderthals  #humanevolution  #skull  #biomineralisation  #oysters  #vertebrates  #invertebrates  #evolution  #phd  #funfacts  #indianwomeninscience  #hongkong  #hk  #indian  #kanmani_science  #kanmani_chandrarajan  #indianscientists  #tamilscientist  #tamilgirl
