Hi, I'm Paige! Microbiology, Environmental Studies and Permaculture Design student, member of the Victoria Makerspace BioSpace, and founder of Nyoka, the 'glow stick startup that's tackling climate change' using applied green materials science. I love how biotech innovation can transform everyday pollutants into objects which have healing value for our planet and ourselves. "When technology is advanced enough it is indistinguishable from nature", and that is what biotech is proving. I am passionate about planetary healing, indigenous rights, gender equality, and science-as-empowerment. In my spare time I am a really bad DJ.
