Recent research suggests there may be a crisis of well-being in science. To what extent is this the case among Indian physicists, particularly those working in theoretical and mathematical sciences? What challenges to mental health and well-being do they identify, and what changes do they want to see? This workshop will examine these questions using data from the Work and Well-Being in Science study (2021), focusing in particular on surveys and interviews with Indian scientists. Subsequently, workshop participants will discuss what it means for them to thrive as scientists; what obstacles currently exist, particularly with respect to well-being; and attempt to generate potential solutions and ways to improve well-being in science.
