UWS x EB Impact: Women in STEM driving Sustainability
In celebration of International Day of Women & Girls in Science 2022, we met three inspiring women, Prof Madhavi Srinivasan, Nur Estya bte Rahman and Chin Yen Yen, who are applying their passion in STEM to drive meaningful impact in sustainability. This campaign was done in collaboration with United Women Singapore (UWS), a local non-profit organisations that advances women's empowerment and gender equality.
Featuring Nur Estya bte Rahman | Women in STEM driving Sustainability
Meet Nur Estya bte Rahman, Research Associate at The Asian School of Environment, at Nanyang Technological University Singapore. Estya is an excellent scientist working on revegetation projects. With her background in plant physiology and ecology, she often organises field trips into the forests to collect leaf samples for experiments. Estya is truly passionate about nature and biodiversity conservation. When travelling was allowed, she would use her spare time to volunteer for the MYCAT, which is an organisation for tiger conservation in Malaysia. She hopes for more youths to take the lead in creating a positive impact on the world around us. Watch as Estya shares about her work in STEM research, driving sustainable development in Singapore.
