My name is Luca and I am the founder of Young Diverse Scientist. Being an underrepresented student of color, I have often seen that there were fewer opportunities for people like myself. Access to guidance, a network of contacts in the industry and friends and family in science and research space were not options.

At Young Diverse Scientist, we hope to connect our passion for the science with the need for more diversity in the field of scientific research, opening up the doors for a new generation of diverse future scientists who will come together to make the world a better place for all one day.
