Layla El-Dakhakhni


I’m Layla, a first-year at UofT pursuing Environmental Chemistry and History and Philosophy of Science majors. I am fascinated by the study of atoms and molecules – to understand them is to understand everything from cosmetics and roads to tropical rainforests and human bodies. I am also a lifelong community worker, and very excited to bring my science education at UofT to the wider community through the SCC. I love to learn about everything, especially the social, historical, and political context of science. If this sounds like you, too, please connect with me @laylaeldak on Instagram! Talk soon :]
