This series will explore the journey of scientific discoveries. Very often, science is known only by its finished product. But the path is not revealed. Through these lectures, we attempt to unravel the processes of science, including the struggles and failures.

Making Animals Tell Their Stories

Abstract : I am a behavioural biologist working on free-ranging dogs. During my PhD at IISc, I worked on understanding wasp society politics. In the last 19 years of studying two very different animals, I have accumulated many experiences and stories. In my talk, I will relate the journeys of the scientists probing into the private lives of animals, telling some of these stories behind the science and touching upon the science that the stories unravelled.
