Welcome to Passio Inventa


From the Latin “passio,” meaning passion, and “inventa,” meaning discovery. As young scientists, we exist as the bridge between these two concepts.

We are a group of graduate students from all walks of life who are passionate about the way the world works. Embark with us on a journey of discovery of some of our greatest passions, and learn what being a graduate student and a scientist looks like. Whoever you are, whatever background you are from, it is our hope you will find something that interests you in these diverse pages, and that you’ll learn a thing or two along the way.
