One of my passions is sharing my love of science with the rest of the world! I’m involved in lots of public outreach at UCLA.
I’ve been a UCLA Planetarium Coordinator since June 2013. We have free public shows every Wednesday night and offer private shows to local school groups!
I have served as the WIPA Events Coordinator since 2015. I organize outreach events and plan meetings for undergraduate and graduate students to interact with female colloquium speakers.
I’m a member of the UCLA Astronomy Diversity Committee. We host workshops focused on improving diversity and inclusion in our department.
I give 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 have been an organizer for the UCLA Astronomy Live! High School Summer Observing Workshop since its inception in 2013. This summer is our 5th year! 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.
