I had the pleasure of participating in Caltech's Science for March
community outreach event in 2019. I feel strongly that spreading excitement and awareness about science in general
and climate science in particular is in our mandate as socially responsible citizens and scientists.
And I love teaching kids about science because they are so excitable and naturally curious about our world.
I tutor through the Caltech Y Rise Program.
During summer 2020, I tutored one student over Zoom (due to COVID-19) while she prepared to take the SAT exam.
I am involved in outreach activities aimed at recruiting undergrad students to stay involved in STEM
and go to graduate school, at Caltech or elsewhere. Most recently, I gave a research talk at Caltech's
FUTURE Ignited 2020 virtual conference to a group of
students who are interested in Earth science!
Leadership roles within the Caltech community
I am a Caltech Diversity and Inclusion Ambassador.
My advocacy project involves establishing a data-driven framework through which invited seminar speaker's demographics
can be tracked over time and used to assess departmental progress towards diversity targets.
I am the president of the
Women in Geophysical and Planetary Sciences (WinG) group at Caltech. We organize coffee
chats with visiting professors, a monthly journal club to discuss social science research about
gender and minority representation in the sciences, and social events for students in the
GPS division at Caltech.
I co-organize the ESE department weekly seminar with Jörn Callies.
I am participating in the Unlearning Racism in Geoscience
(URGE) Caltech GPS Pod which began in winter 2021. I am working with a group of fellow graduate students
and postdocs to create anti-racist policy recommendations for our Division to follow in spaces ranging from
fieldwork to graduate admissions.
I am a founding member, and was the treasurer from 2019-2021, of the
Caltech Hillel student group for Jewish life at Caltech.
I have had the privilege of participating in the Giving Voice project
and serving on the Title IX Graduate Student Council since 2019.
