" Many times, there is inadequate communication between the scientific community and the general public. I would love to help establish a healthy perception of science within my community to increase knowledge and strengthen the educational programs.
Being a Millennium Fellow is very exciting because I am granted the opportunity to connect with other leaders worldwide. I am very fortunate to have the ability to collaborate with such a wonderful group of people and generate meaningful changes within our communities. "
