Maia Dall'Acqua

Chief Editor and Writer

Hi! My name is Maia, and I am a 3rd year undergraduate student at the University of Toronto St. George. I’m currently studying ecology and evolutionary biology, as well as cell and molecular biology. My current research interests surround the impacts of climate change and natural selection on plant fitness.

I’ve always enjoyed reading and writing, especially non-fiction, so I was immediately drawn to the SCC in my first year of undergrad. The SCC has been a perfect environment for me to explore and expand my passion for science beyond my field of study, and to grow as both as a writer and an editor. It is such a privilege to be surrounded by talented writers and illustrators who bring diverse ideas to our club every week!

When I’m not writing or studying, you can find me playing violin or guitar, birdwatching, or spending copious amounts of time in the lab!
