Hi! I'm Teressa! I'm currently pursuing a PhD in Plant Physiology at The University of the West Indies, Trinidad. Although I work with plants, my background is in physics and so I apply physics to refine our understanding of plant structure and function. I'm also the founder of STEM Caribbean Media which is a platform for Caribbean voices in STEM as well as the co-founder of STEMNoire which is a research conference and retreat for women within the African diaspora. I hope to contribute significantly to the upliftment of women and girls in science and continue building a network of Caribbean STEM professionals toward Caribbean youth empowerment, pursuit and retention in STEM careers.
