We are excited to introduce and welcome our new Ambassador for India, “Dr. Ravindra P. Veerana”, and are looking forward to strengthen networking with Dr. Ravindra’s expanded academic circle which will fasten the council’s connectivity with Indian Researchers as well as high profile Scientists.
For the very first time in 2018, Dr. Ravindra joined us during our parallel series of 5th Annual Conference of The ACSE and 2nd ACSTM, in Dubai, UAE. His strong research profile let him be selected to present his outstanding research work in 2nd Asian Conference on Science, Technology & Medicine–(A series of conferences organized byThe ACSE.) There he got an ample opportunity to network with Editor’s, Publishers, Researchers, and Librarians over the platform of The ACSE, and took part in interesting panel discussions too, which initiated a deep interest of Dr. Ravindra to be a part of The Asian Council of Science Editors.
Considering the research profile, active professional circle, and deep insights of Dr. Ravindra in terms of scientific knowledge and publications, he was selected as a new Ambassador for India by the Membership Committee.
Congratulations Dr. Ravindra for being a part of ACSE Member’s Family and a good luck from the council for your new position at The ACSE.
