See It Be It STEM It | International Day of Women in STEM with Dr. Hind Al-Abadleh and Dendra Hillier

On 11 February, scientists and organizations across the world will celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science – and you can join in too! Join us at this virtual session to introduce your class to a role model who will share their journey into science. Dr. Al-Abadleh grew up in the United Arab Emirates. In high school, she developed an interest on how chemicals can impact the environment. So, she studied chemistry in university, did her PhD in atmospheric chemistry at Iowa. She is currently the Chair of the Environment Division for the Chemical Institute of Canada. Through her research, teaching and outreach activities, Al-Abadleh highlights how chemistry helps us understand human impacts on the natural balance and its role in building a sustainable future. Dr. Al-Abadleh is the 2019 Fulbright Canada Research Chair in Atmospheric Chemistry, Air Quality and Climate Change at the University of California Irvine.

Dendra Hillier received her Bachelor of Science and Master of Science at the University of Guelph and is a Research Technician at the University of Western, in London ON. At work she performs her own research on brain development, manages the laboratory, and helps students who are studying towards their PhDs. Dendra loves the biology of cells, understanding how genes are regulated, and exploring how we come from an egg to forming the complicated adult brain. She also love to hike, dance, and go camping.
