Hi there! I am Akshata Naik, Ph.D., creator of ‘A Naik Owl’.
I often have thoughts that become ideas that become something more. ‘A Naik Owl’ was born as a result of the “something more” that I wish to share with the world. Also, it is a great place to get to know me :)
I am passionate about scientific communication whether it is educating a classroom of students, presenting at conferences, brainstorming with peers or distilling scientific information for the non-scientists! 
I am an Assistant Professor at Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine. I have a Ph.D. in physiology from Wayne State University. Prior to joining OUWB, I briefly worked as a medical writer at Health and Wellness Partners, LLC. 

In my spare time I enjoy hiking, reading, painting and drinking coffee. 

Ping me anytime to chat about science!
