Despite outperforming boys in science subjects up until grade 8, less than 10% of Pakistani engineering graduates are women. We believe societal pressures and stereotypical fear of math and science inhibits inclination to STEM education and consequent STEM careers for many young girls in Pakistan and globally. Games built around math and science problems help dispel fear, and encourage students to understand science concepts in a fun manner that is easier to remember during exams and in general.

Currently pursuing a PhD in Civil Engineering, I am researching structural resilience against natural hazards, and identify as “Scholar-activist & STEMinist”. With my organization Women Engineers Pakistan (WEP), I am paving way for technical advancement of women in science, technology, engineering & math (STEM), via school outreach, industry training, student-industry linkage, and other initiatives to close the gender-gap in STEM. I hold multiple fellowships, including the Fulbright scholarship.
