Meet Our Founder: Dr. Ashie Bhandiwad
Dr. Ashie Bhandiwad is an entrepreneur, scientist, and educator. She is a strong advocate for food based STEM education for young children. Ashie founded StemChef on this principle to keep STEM interest kindled and alive among children. Happily she also tackles the female “pipeline” issue that is blamed for under-represented female gender in STEM careers. She spoke about this at the TEDx SF conference in 2018.
Prior to founding StemChef, Ashie had dedicated a decade of her life working on renewable energy to combat climate change. She holds a patent for her doctoral work at Dartmouth College. Her papers have been published in top scientific journals.
Now Ashie is out to inspire the teeny tots to take on global issues of their generation.
