ISC and its partners organised the 9th edition of the Science Summit around the 78th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA78) on 12-29 September 2023.
The role and contribution of science to attaining the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be the central theme of the Summit. The objective is to develop and launch science collaborations to demonstrate global science mechanisms and activities to support the attainment of the UN SDGs, Agenda 2030 and Local2030. The meeting will also prepare input for the United Nations Summit of the Future, which will take place during UNGA79 beginning on 12 September 2024.

Yash is a Ph.D. student in the College of Computing and Informatics at UNC Charlotte, where he is pursuing an interdisciplinary degree in Computer Science and Sociology. Serving as the incumbent General Secretary of the World Student Platform for Engineering Education and Development (SPEED) and the Technology Focal Point for UNMGCY Science Policy Interface, he advocates for the equitable advancement of STEM education on a global scale, actively fostering youth participation in STEM initiatives through engagements with the United Nations Major Group and stakeholder mechanisms. At UNC Charlotte he is assisting various NSF research projects under the Center for Education Innovation (CEI) Lab and the Human-Centered Computing (HCC) Lab. He is the President of the Charlotte Human-centered Research Group and the Graduate and Professional Student Government at UNCC, serving on various Boards and Committees at Charlotte. 

His research agenda explores how an individual's identity influences their interaction with and learning of technology, particularly in the domains of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Computer Science (CS) education. Drawing from his industry background as a Data Analyst and Programming Associate in the United States, his doctoral pursuits presently concentrate on two primary themes: "Utilizing an intersectional positionality approach to analyze student experiences to understand the diversity deficit in the realm of AI" and "Gaining insights into the student experience within introductory Computer Science courses by employing an intersectional framework." He has showcased his research at distinguished international conferences such as FIE, WEEF, and ISA World Congress across diverse global locations including Sweden, the United States, South Africa, Australia, and India.
