Hi! I'm Farah. I’m a graduate student at the University of Toronto, where my research involves sequencing patient DNA to better understand complex neurological disorders. When not in the lab, I write, speak and organize various science policy, communication, and outreach initiatives - including Wikipedia editing and Edit-A-Thons to increase the coverage of women and minority scientists in the online encyclopedia.
