One of my passions is sharing my love of science with the rest of the world!
In Summer 2019, I was a Design Team Leader for ISEE’s Professional Development Workshop. Our team led an activity at the AstroTech workshop at Berkeley, a workshop geared towards advancing underrepresented minorities in instrumentation. In 2020 and 2021, I served on the Curriculum Development team for AstroTech and led activities related to spectral resolution, gratings, science case development, and spectrograph conceptual design at the 2021 AstroTech.
I was a member of the UCSC Diversity & Inclusion committee in the Astronomy & Astrophysics department. We plan regular discussions and workshops for the community to come together and work on building a more inclusive environment.
I was a UCLA Planetarium Coordinator from June 2013-2018. UCLA offers free public shows every Wednesday night and offer private shows to local school groups!
I served as the UCLA WIPA Events Coordinator from 2015-2017. I organized outreach events and plan meetings for undergraduate and graduate students to interact with female colloquium speakers.
I was a member of the UCLA Astronomy Diversity Committee. We hosted workshops focused on improving diversity and inclusion in our department.
I gave astronomy demos with Astronomy Live!, the UCLA Astronomy outreach group. My favorite demo is the rockets demo; I was the rockets booth coordinator for 2014, 2015, and 2017 at our annual day of science, Exploring Your Universe.
I was an organizer for the UCLA Astronomy Live! High School Summer Observing Workshop since its inception in 2013 until I left in 2018. I coordinated and ran the observing with the Lick Nickel 1-m telescope for 4 years, in addition to mentoring the high school students on their independent research projects.
