NI#6: Enabling infrastructures of care in academia with Ramya Ravi

In this episode, Hita and Nusrat Molla, were joined by Ramya Ravi, Ph.D scholar at Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment (ATREE), Bengaluru.  We reflected on the previous episodes of this series through the perspective of early career scholars, and spoke a bit about reading across disciplines, challenging established ecological or social principles in interdisciplinary research, as well as finding our tribes. We ended the episode with a small discussion on the emotional burden of caregiving coupled with the precarity of academia and how informal collaborations and mentoring can help one to deal with difficult circumstances.
