Driving tractors on a farm growing up in Hawaii could not have prepared Dianna for the science and engineering work she would later pursue. She researched dark matter with Prof. Jocelyn Monroe at MIT, and low-metallicity stars with Prof. Anna Frebel at the Harvard. Eventually, she started exercising the nerdy side of her brain on YouTube as Physics Girl.
