Biographical Sketch (Biosketch) Defined

A biosketch is a brief summary of you or someone else's professional /educational accomplishments, publications, and affiliations--an abbreviated curriculum vitae--meant to highlight important aspects of your training, experience, and areas of interest.

In plain words...it's a "light sketch" of a persons life.

Other contributors have said:

I was taught that a biography is about someone else while an autobiography is about one's self. So an autobiographical sketch would be a biosketch of your own life while a biographical sketch is a biosketch of anybody else's life.

Just describe the person and write what main accomplishments the person has done. Has he won Prizes like Nobel? Or has he written books?
