Amy NY Chen has a PhD in behavioural pharmacology and is currently working as a postdoctoral researcher trying to understand how proteins interact with chemicals to help design better drugs. She has an aspiration to work in science communication and is passionate about diversity and inclusion in science. Born in Malaysia and raised in Taiwan and the US before moving to Australia, Amy believes that diversity in gender identity, race and culture in the science community is crucial and wants to empower people around the world to overcome limitations and pursue their dreams.
