Nada Salem graduated from the University of Calgary with a B.Sc. in Cellular, Molecular & Microbial Biology and minors in Philosophy and Nanoscience. She is fascinated by genetic medicine and the innovation of nanotechnology in diagnostic and drug-delivery methods.
Her introduction to SciComm began as a videographer in the Science Ambassador team at the University of Calgary, while filming videos and interviewing members of the Faculty of Science. She found herself immersed in the scientific community, and drawn to exploring the work of scientists in various disciplines. As a student of philosophy, debating scientific ethics and policy pulled her further into the world of science writing.
Nada enjoys writing about new technologies and issues in science and ethics. When she’s not sciencing, you can find her watching docudramas, painting, or adventuring in the mountains.
She joined Science Borealis in November 2020, taking on the role of Chemistry editor.
