Dr Sneh Patel

WeSTEM Project Manager

Sneh is the project manager for WeSTEM, an innovative programme for engaging west Auckland ākonga in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and maths). Before joining Te Hononga Akoranga COMET, she completed her PhD in chemistry at the University of Auckland. 

The time Sneh spent in the undergraduate teaching labs and working with local schools inspired her interest in STEM engagement and outreach. Sneh’s passion for science from a young age drove her towards a career in the field, and now she wants to show rangatahi that this is a viable choice for them, too. Science is for everybody, and anything is achievable with the right mindset.
