I had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Kausik Datta for this episode. Dr. Datta is a research fellow at Johns Hopkins University. He does research on fungi and how they interact with the immune system. His work is very important in light of the increased incidence of fungal infections due to suppressed or compromised immune systems. Dr. Datta is also a friend of mine, and we have shared many discussions on issues of science in general and public health in particular, so this episode is very much him and I sitting down for a chat. We discussed his upbringing in India, how he got to the United States, and his plans for the future. Dr. Datta’s blog is In Scientio, Veritas, where he takes on pseudo-scientific claims.
The interview is about 20 minutes long. I hope you enjoy it.
