Meethila is a Bangladeshi-American raised in New York who recently moved to Louisiana. She became a nature lover and conservation enthusiast when she first ventured out from the concrete jungles of New York and began to understand the planet in a new way. Her experience on a 10-day research cruise to explore underwater volcanoes in the Pacific Ocean solidified her passion for conservation and urged her to pursue science communication to help get the public interested as well. She is currently working on finishing up her Master's degree with a research focus on environmental education and communication.
