Jayashree Prasad-Sinha, PhD
I am a geneticist, researcher and educator by profession. I earned my Ph.D. at the University Calcutta, India, I spent the majority of my career as a research scientist understanding mechanisms of gene regulation. When I retired from academia, I decided to work with the youth of our country to build their scientific temper by joining Teach For America as a corps member. I have taught science to middle school and high school students at both public and charter schools for the last several years in Dallas, TX. I am a climate activist for all current and future generations of children and their right to a clean and breathable air, clean and contamination-free drinking water, healthy and thriving planet that can sustain all forms of flora and fauna.
I have given presentations on the climate crisis to a variety of audiences, especially students, young adults and adults, mixed audiences, clubs. I have been a traveller and learner all my life. Books are a source of knowledge, information and inspiration to me. I believe in “waste not want not,” or “willful waste makes woeful want (circa1576)” and living in tune with nature surrounded by flowers, plants, trees, rivers, lakes, seas, oceans, mountains and all kind of living things in their natural habitat, wherever and whenever possible.
