Parshati Patel is an astrophysicist, planetary scientist, science communicator and educator. As a young girl, she discovered astronomy on a trip to the planetarium on holiday with the family and has not looked back.
She struggled to convince her traditional Gujarati family about her career choice and found a unique way to win them over. With her family convinced, she moved to Canada to study astronomy and build her career as an astrophysicist. Today she is a passionate advocate for Women of Color in STEAM and inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers through space science and technology.
