Eylene Pirez

Physicist and Mountaineer

Originally from Camaguey, Cuba Eylene came to America in 2001 to explore her new found freedom and pursue a career in science. Today, she's a physicist and mountaineer embarking on a journey to make science literacy a lifestyle by creating an adventure travel series called Access Chile. The inspiration for this series came to her as she was reading an article about scientists retrieving mummies a top of the world's highest mountains. 

"I’ve always wanted to use my gifts, as a physicist and mountaineer, to bring science literacy to the world."
