About Upulie Divisekera

A molecular biologist by trade, the self-proclaimed “Dinosaur Evangelist” Upulie Divisekera entertained nearly 25K Twitter followers by tweeting about everything from science to pop culture in 2017. Recalling what led her to science as a child, she also co-founded the Real Scientists, a Twitter feed taken over by a new scientist, researcher, or communicator each week. Dubbed one of the “Badass Women in Science” by the blog theladiesfinger.com, Upulie made headlines with her “Mughal Science Reactions,” a project where she takes Medieval Mughal illustrations and upends them with funny captions about life as a woman in science. Whether you’re a diehard science fan, or you simply enjoy laughing, Upulie’s Twitter account has something to tickle your brain.
