I am bi and I am a planetary science student and science communicator.//


I am currently an undergrad studying Geophysics and Astrophysics at the University of Chicago. I am really interested in planetary science and astronautics, and I really want to study the geomorphology of Mars in the future.

I love communicating to the public about science, especially young kids. I come from a pretty disadvantaged background, and I want to inspire kids who are in a similar situation to pursue science and believe that they can participate in it.

It took me some time to finally come out as bisexual to the people closest to me, and even though not everyone took it well, I am happy to be who I am and really proud. No one will ever be able to change that, and I want to continue to stand up for LGBTQ+ rights in the future!
