Could you tell us about yourself and your work?
I am Dr. Rajani K S. I am a life coach, career counsellor, educator, researcher, author and motivational speaker.
I hold a Ph.D. degree in Biotechnology with research experience in anti-cancer studies. I am a gold medallist in my Master’s degree. I am a certified Life Coach and a certified Career Counsellor. I have published research articles in reputed science journals and have authored a popular bioscience book ‘Adventures of Microbe Explorers’.

I have over 15 years of rich teaching experience as an educator, Head of the department and Coordinator, having taught over 5000 students who have chosen to be doctors, dentists, scientists, researchers, or pursue other bright careers. In addition, given my passion for science and love for students, I have delivered over 300 science talks, keynote addresses and hands-on demonstrations to inspire and excite kids, pre-teens and teenagers about science. Over this time, I have guided hundreds of students and young working professionals to resolve their critical questions of life, have groomed their life skills and helped them make appropriate life decisions to become successful and happy individuals.
With the insights I have gathered from this rich experience, I have founded two initiatives with well-defined visions to help and support a wider circle of people with similar needs – Rajani’s BioHub and Rajani’s LifeHub.

With Rajani’s LifeHub, I support teenagers and working professionals – both men and women – to discover their true potential and excel in the field they are passionate about. I help them with tools, techniques and mindset changes necessary to find clarity and courage, to build consistency, monetize their talent, move up the career ladder, acquire economic freedom, improve relationships, develop effective communication and, in short, develop life skills and lead happy and successful lives.
