'My biggest fear was that when you're writing about yourself, you're writing about yourself. It could come off like an ego trip!'
- Steve Martin
'The fear of self-promotion consists of all behavioral habits, thoughts, actions, or feelings, which conspire to keep competent people of all walks of life from being able to stand up and take credit for who they are and what they do well!"
- Behavioral scientist George W. Dudley, co-author of the book "Are You Earning What You Are Worth?"
"The ideal scientist thinks like a poet, works like a bookkeeper, and … writes like a journalist."

Growing up, my interests were heavily affected by family members and acquaintances, many of them were physicians or scientists and instilled in me a love of biology and the living sciences. Through the advice or life examples of these early mentors, I was inspired to prioritise learning and research as my primary life goals.
After completing my public school education, I entered as an undergraduate student at the American College (a "fancy college"), Madurai (affiliated with the Madurai Kamaraj University, Madurai, India) in 1981 and later completed my master's programme there in 1988-90. My studies were halted between 1984 and 1988 because I needed to support my family. I moved on to work as a medical representative and a sales officer for two big pharmaceutical firms (Aristo and Cipla).
I wasn't exactly a rising academic star. If I were to quote Einstein (‘I am not exceptionally clever, only incurably inquisitive,'), I believe that the best scientists were defined by this single most attitude. These were attributes I believed I possessed and which motivated me throughout my scientific career.
Following the completion of my master's degree, I developed an interest in the subject of sleep medicine, which I attribute to my previous experience working in sleep laboratories, as well as the possibility to do sleep-related research. Finally, the science of sleep became a topic close to my heart, and I decided to devote the remainder of my life to researching it. In graduate courses in sleep and chronobiology that I took at the University of Toronto and elsewhere, I was also fortunate to have had talented and motivating lecturers. These experiences have shaped me, and as a result, I am excited to continue my work in sleep research.
There have been various academic and research opportunities since the 1990s that have allowed me to further clarify my interests and research aims. During my master's programme at the University of Toronto, I was particularly interested in sleep and chronobiology. As a postgraduate research student, I worked with Colin M Shapiro, B.Sc., MBBCH., PhD., MRCPSYCH, FRCP(C), of the University of Toronto's Department of Psychiatry, who recommended that I work in clinical areas of sleep medicine in his sleep research laboratory at Toronto Western Hospital. During that time, I worked closely with Leonid Kayumov, Ph.D., RPsgT, ABSM (Kayumov et al., 2000a, b). This experience taught me the fundamentals of clinical sleep medicine, such as how to interact with patients and research subjects, as well as the most technical requirements of scoring and interpreting polysomnographic recordings, diagnosing sleep diseases, and producing reports. Working with Prof. Shapiro and his really multinational research team was a pleasure.
I also worked with Martin R. Ralph, Ph.D., at the University of Toronto's Department of Psychology during this time. During my graduate studies at the university's Institute of Medical Sciences, Prof. Ralph introduced me to several areas of biological rhythms (Pandi-Perumal et al., 2002).
Later, I joined Mircea M. Steriade, MD, DSc, Director of the Laboratory of Neurophysiology at the University of Laval School of Medicine in Quebec, and continued to work on neurophysiological studies of behavioural state control in an animal model utilizing cats. This experience enabled me to work on fundamental sleep-related problems at the molecular and cellular levels. I took part in studies on the involvement of Cortical Ih in the formation of paroxysmal activities, as well as the role of greater association propensity vs. primary visual cortices in the genesis of slow sleep oscillations (Pandi-Perumal et al., 1999; 2000).
I was also fortunate to work with world-renowned researchers such as Michael H. Chase, Ph.D., Department of Physiology and Brain Research Institute (1999-2000), UCLA School of Medicine, and Rosalind D. Cartwright, Ph.D., Department of Psychology, RUSH University Medical Center, Chicago, USA. In collaboration with Prof. Chase, I investigated the intracellular changes in excitability in hypoglossal motoneurons during naturally occurring active sleep (Fung et al., 2001a,b). My involvement with Prof. Cartwright included participation in N.I.M.H.-sponsored sleep research in untreated depressed people (Cartwright et al., 2003). In addition to my solid training, one key reason for my academic achievement was surely the interaction between me and my stimulating mentors, who provided an exciting scientific atmosphere, which was the start of a life-long scientific collaboration. Their connection lasted, and I kept in touch with many of the scientists he met throughout his life. My network continued to expand. I am known for the zeal that drove these fruitful collaborations, for the joy I derived and gave from the successes of others, and for my generosity of spirit.
The national and worldwide research communities played an important role in my social life because I was always in contact with them for various reasons. In my personal life, however, I was very close to my family and spent a lot of time with them. My house served as both a castle and a haven for me.
Concurrent with my clinical and laboratory research activities, I began working as a scientific editor for Landes Bioscience and Springer Verlag in the United States (2003 to present), an experience that has greatly broadened my understanding of the strategy for documenting and presenting findings.
Having connected with several leading academic publishers, I had the opportunity to edit over 25 volumes, and I have published over 300 scientific papers dealing with sleep medicine and chronobiology, and I made many good acquaintances among scientists working in the disciplines of sleep and biological rhythms area all over the world. As a regular or ad hoc reviewer for the journals, I've also had the opportunity to assess and assist journal articles published by notable scientists.Over the years, I have edited several volumes related to sleep and biological rhythms. This includes, Melatonin: Biological Basis of its Function in Health and Disease (Landes Bioscience, USA, 2005); Neuroendocrine Correlates of Sleep/wakefulness (Springer-Verlag, USA, 2005); Sleep and Sleep Disorders: a Neuropsychopharmacological approach (Landes Bioscience/Eurekha.com and Springer SBM, USA, 2006); Clinical Pharmacology of Sleep (Birkhauser-Verlag, Switzerland, 2006); Sleep disorders: their impact on public health (Informa Healthcare, UK, 2006 - British Medical Association 2007 Award Winner, highly commended - Category Neurology); Neuroimmunology of sleep (Springer-Verlag, USA, 2007); Neurochemistry of Sleep and Wakefulness (Cambridge University Press, England, 2007); Melatonin: from molecules to therapy (NovaScience Publishers, New York, USA, 2007); Primary Care Sleep Medicine: a practical guide (Current Clinical Practice; endorsed by American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) (Humana Press/Springer-Verlag, USA, 2007); Sleep and Psychosomatic Medicine (Informa Healthcare, UK, 2007); Serotonin and sleep: molecular, functional, and clinical aspects, functions, and regulation (Birkhauser-Verlag, Switzerland, 2007); Sleep and Quality of life in Clinical Medicine, (Humana/Springer, USA, 2008); Experimental Endocrinology and Reproductive Biology (Science Publishers, NH USA, 2007); Sleep Disorders: Diagnosis and Therapeutics (Informa Healthcare, UK, 2008); Principles and Practice of Geriatric Sleep Medicine (Cambridge University Press, UK, 2009); Seasonal Affective Disorder: Practice and Research - 2nd edition, 2009 (Oxford University Press, Oxford, UK), Sleep and Mental Illness (Cambridge University Press, 2009), Drugs, Driving and Traffic Safety (Birkhauser-Verlag, Switzerland), GABA and sleep: Molecular, Functional, and Clinical Aspects (Birkhauser-Verlag, Switzerland, 2010), Rapid Eye Movement Sleep: Regulation and Function (Cambridge University Press, England, 2011, Narcolepsy: a clinical guide (Humana Press/Springer, USA, 2010), Primary Care Sleep Medicine: a practical guide, 2nd edition (Humana Press/Springer, USA, 2014), Narcolepsy: a clinical guide, 2nd edition (Humana Press/Springer, USA, 2010), Sleep and Psychosomatic Medicine, 2nd edition (CRC Press/Informa Healthcare, USA), Orexin and Sleep: molecular, functional, and clinical aspects (Birkhauser-Verlag, Switzerland/Springer USA), Synopsis of Sleep Medicine (Apple Academic Press, Canada) and Dopamine and Sleep: molecular, functional, and clinical aspects (Birkhauser-Verlag, Switzerland/Springer USA); Clinical Atlast of Polysomnography (Apple Academic Press, Canada); Melanin-concentrating hormone and sleep: molecular, functional, and clinical aspects (Springer-Verlag, Switzerland); Sleep and Neuropsychiatry (Springer); Cannabinoids and Sleep: molecular, functional, and clinical aspects (Springer-Verlag, Switzerland); Cannabinoids and neuropsychiatric disorders (Springer-Verlag, Switzerland); Insomnia disorder: Prevalence, causes and current therapeutics (Elsevier, USA) and Sleep and Environments (Elsevier, USA). Editing a volume is not easy. In a job like this even when it is finished, there is always one more thing' to do!
I've learned and developed a rudimentary awareness of significant challenges in the world of book publishing throughout the years. As an editor, I was involved in the creation of a number of high-profile volumes in the field of sleep medicine. I learned about several areas of scientific editing and publication in general. For example, I was in charge of various parts of the publishing of the volumes in which I was involved. I helped to organise the submission of incoming chapters, the editorial review production process, and the eventual publication of the volumes. I was able to efficiently communicate with co-editors, contributors, departments, and other administrative employees, as well as monitor the work of subcontractors as necessary. As an editor and/or author (or co-author), I have exhibited abilities and experience with the review process and have been able to perform the entire peer-review process independently and without direct outside supervision. I have professional and academic expertise in all of these areas, including making a sound scientific judgment, (ii) adherence to both current and emerging norms for ethical peer review, (iii) fluent communications abilities, and (iv) the capacity to work with precise deadlines.
Having spent decades in academia, I am now seeking to reach a larger audience with the release of two of my children's books: The titles of the books are 'Alice is sleeping,' which will be published in English (publisher to be determined), and 'Alice and the Sleeping Fairy,' which will be published in Japanese (publisher to be decided). With the release of my first children's book, I hope to raise awareness about how sleep and health are intertwined. This book is the result of that dream. This inventive narrative, titled 'Alice is Sleeping,' is best suited for children aged 4 to 8. The goal of this picture book is to show how advocating a simple idea, such as the critical need for adequate sleep in children, can not only improve the child's medical and mental health but also lead to better adult (healthy sleep) habits. In turn, such a positive way of life can help to transform the world.
In summary, my interest in sleep research stemmed from my interest in biology, but it became more focused as I gained knowledge in classical biology through five years of degree programmes and, more importantly, as I gained experience with the actual process of conducting research. The opportunities I've had to work with some exceptionally accomplished mentors in the field of sleep medicine, in particular, have aided my development significantly. Taken as a whole, I feel my background will allow me to make a substantial contribution to the scientific area.
