Abhishek Goel co-founded CACTUS to bridge the science communication gap between the East and the West. He established Editage, CACTUS’s flagship brand, to help researchers overcome the barriers of language and reach, and get published.

In 2020, he supervised the design of a comprehensive AI-powered platform to help researchers across disciplines in their fight against COVID-19. Abhishek is a strong advocate of improving customer experience, and this is reflected in CACTUS’s work culture and customer-friendly policies.
