Research Scientist, DDPSC
Sci-ROI Role: Fundraising, Social Media & Newsletter
I am a plant scientist by profession and by name (Thiya from Thea chinensis). Currently, I am working as a Research Scientist at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, Saint Louis, MO. Here I study, soybean seed metabolism and how we can tweak various complex pathways there in, to have a more sustainable and high-yielding plant oil and protein source. I am excited to serve as Sci-ROI Global team volunteer 2022. Enthusiastically looking forward to learning from the excellent members and fellow volunteers and contribute to the social media and the fundraising team this year. Besides Science, I am an avid badminton player.
