I am bi and I am a hydrologist/chemist/environmental engineer.//


I’m a bisexual scientist/engineer/educator and representation and visibility is very important to me in STEM, especially being a woman of color. It’s great for people from underrepresented groups to see themselves in a role, so I try to promote the message that science is for everybody – there isn’t one ‘type’ of person that becomes a scientist. I’m also very passionate about conservation and protecting the environment, because that’s for everybody too!
