Hi, I’m Gaya!

I’m a researcher in neuroscience and psychology with a nerdish obsession for academic writing. I’ve spent many years in academia, working for leading research institutions across Europe, and I’ve published my work in high-ranking journals in neuroscience and psychology (see my university portal).

Beyond my research, I also work as a scientific trainer for many European universities and share writing and productivity tips for scientists on my blog. I’ve seen firsthand how a strong foundation in academic writing can boost a researcher’s career, and I’m excited to share my knowledge and experience with you.

Why I became obsessed with scientific writing

Writing academic papers can be tough!

I’ve been there: endlessly tweaking my drafts, hunting for anything else to do besides writing the damn paper, staring blankly at the screen, debating whether to do more literature research, start writing, or just grab another coffee (coffee usually won :-).

And then, one day, I decided to take the bull by the horns and find solutions to my struggles. I realized that mastering academic writing isn’t about innate talent; it’s about technique. And just like any other skill, with the right tools and approach, one can learn and enjoy it.

It’s taken me long to get to this point. Now, I’m here to give you the playbook.

What students think about the course

Sebastiano Zanini

“Thanks to the course, I have written a manuscript I am proud of – and one that has received high praise from my supervisor.

Enrolling in the course was a game-changer for me! I was writing my first paper, and I struggled to find a good thread and organize my ideas effectively. Thanks to the course, I have written a manuscript I am proud of – and one that has received high praise from my supervisor.

This system is incredibly efficient and straightforward – I’ve never come across anything like it before. I can’t wait to use it again for my next papers.”

— Sebastiano Zanini, PhD student in ecology

The workbooks helped me organize my thoughts.

As a second-year PhD student required to produce extensive written work, I faced challenges structuring complex ideas and articulating them coherently. This writing course was a game-changer for me. The comprehensive workbooks provided the framework that I needed. They simplified my writing process and helped me overcome my struggle to organize my thoughts. Constantly referring to the workbooks, my writing became more focused and concise.

This course transformed my writing approach, making it easier and more impactful.  I highly recommend it to anyone seeking a clearer, more efficient approach to academic writing.”

— Mina Movahedi, PhD student in psychology

Alankrita Rina

“I wrote three papers in a year!

As a second-year PhD student, I signed up for Dr. Kedia’s workshop on scientific writing, thinking it would be just another course. To my surprise, it turned out to be an experience that transformed my writing process:

  • Free writing has allowed me to communicate more authentically without excessive self-criticism.
  • Integrating storytelling into scientific writing has helped me transform dry facts into engaging narratives.
  • Understanding the importance of a narrative arc has given structure and coherence to my work.

My writing has gained authenticity and impact. The process no longer frightens me, and I wrote three papers in a year. I am very happy I now have access to these insights through the online course.”

— Alankrita Rina, PhD student in pharmacology

Without this course, I wouldn’t have been able to write my master’s thesis so easily.

Working with Gaya and her scientific writing method has transformed me. The course offers practical and methodological insights and invaluable psychological support throughout the process. Without it, I wouldn’t have been able to write my master’s thesis so easily. I wholeheartedly recommend Gaya’s method to anyone wishing to improve their academic writing skills.
