@theNASciences comes from #Casablanca in #Morocco and moved to @UMich for a #PhD on interaction of Mars & Venus atmosphere and solar winds. However, she had a crisis and wanted to give back to her community, and dove into #scipol, #ethics, #economics
She went on to do a Christine Mirzayan S&T fellowship via @aaas, one of the few options available to #international applicants (cc @IWS_Network). Wanting to engage #ECR, she applied for a position @theNASciences, got in, and never looked back #NSPNsymposium18
She now promotes #international development, security, and cooperation with @theNASciences, through #Science #technology and #innovation.

@theNASciences β‰  @NSF! The National academy is independent from govt and provides #scienceadvice and #evidence for #scipol
