I am PhD student at Purdue University. My background is on environmental science and wildlife conservation. The focus of my current research is on informal learning and environmental education. I design multi-modal curricula for middle-school and visually impaired students. My passion is to motivate youth to nature and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) through hand-on and inquiry-based activities. I am originally from Iran and came to U.S. for my higher education, I am a visual artist and nature is my biggest inspiration. I also works on national and international projects on effective communication through science and art.
