6 March 2021: The Irish Life, Dr. Sindy Joyce

This week on This Irish American Life we share a recent interview with Dr. Sindy Joyce. The first member of the Mincéir community (historically referred to as Irish Travellers) to receive a Ph.D. in Ireland, Dr. Joyce is a member of President Michael D. Higgins’ Council of State. The event took place in collaboration with the Growing Up in Science Series which was founded by NYU’s Prof. Weiji Ma for scientists to tell their life story, including struggles that they have had to overcome and with a special interest in underrepresented groups. Introductions by Prof. Weiji Ma and Dr. Seán Froudist-Walsh.
