About Electra

Theoretical Physicist, Science Communicator, Science Education Specialist, University Instructor, Professional Development Facilitator.

Electra wore many hats over the years, driven by a passion for life-long learning and a pull to 'cross disciplines' to find different ways of thinking and expression.

As a researcher, she is interested on how people learn and on the structures that support people's motivation to keep learning.

As an immigrant, she knows the challenges of integrating in a new culture (for someone with a Middle Eastern background relocating to the UK, Europe and North America).

A former rhythmic gymnast, she now funnels her creative energy into tango dancing.


Land Acknowledegment

I live on the traditional territory of many Indigenous Nations. The area known as Tkaronto has been care taken by the Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and the Huron-Wendat. It is now home to many First Nation, Inuit and Métis communities. The current treaty holders are the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. This territory is subject of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement to peaceably share and care for the Great Lakes region.

I invite conversations about what this land acknowledgement means to me.
