Arya is passionate about outdoor equity, environmental justice, and making science more welcoming and accessible to a broad range of audiences — especially to communities of historically underrepresented and marginalized identities in STEM. She's a storyteller currently working to build community around nature in Los Angeles and across California. 

She earned dual degrees in Biology and Cognitive Science (specializing in Design & Interaction) from the University of California, San Diego. She's served as a science communicator in various capacities at several museums and science institutions, including the California Academy of Sciences, the Birch Aquarium at Scripps, CuriOdyssey, and more. 

When she's not creating content or communicating science, you're likely to find her making zines, playing violin, gardening, or attempting to perfect her pickling techniques. One of her favorite rocky intertidal species is the ochre sea star. (It's colorful, resilient, and doesn't have a backbone — what's not to love?)
