Alia seeks opportunities to make sustainable and impactful changes to science and science education. Her passion for equity and interdisciplinary learning and teaching has led her to explore laboratory research, curriculum design, community outreach, and online educational platform development. 

Alia has had the pleasure to serve hundreds of high school science teachers and thousands of middle and high school students in the New England area as the Site Technician, Site Coordinator, and now Site Director, for the Massachusetts ABE Program site over the last nine years. Consequently, she has developed skills at the lab bench and in the classroom that serve as the foundation for a hybrid approach to teaching and learning.

Alia holds a Bachelor of Science in Biology form Northeastern University and a Master of Liberal Arts degree in biotechnology at Harvard University. As a current Ed.M. candidate at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, she continues to push the boundaries of science education and outreach.
