Nabiha Saklayen


Nabiha graduated with a B.S. in Physics and minor in Mathematics from Emory University. She is currently pursuing her PhD in Physics, and her research involves developing a novel gene therapy technique using ultrafast lasers. Having lived in Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Germany growing up, Nabiha speaks 5 languages and may never settle on a single hometown. Her kaleidoscopic worldview is shaped by her passion for feminism, education, and international policy. She wants to start her own biotechnology company in the future, and fight poverty in developing countries through education.
