Community Outreach: Science Teaching through Art (STAr)
During Fall quarter 2014 I participated in the Science Teaching through Art workshop. As a part of the workshop, participants made posters about their research and presented them to students in a local high school and community college. I presented a poster "Health forums + Math = Discovery of side effects," the project my team worked on at the IMSM 2014 workshop organized by SAMSI.
Brown University: Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE)
As an undergraduate at Brown University, I was actively involved in the university's Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) program. I co-founded the Physics affinity group, and I was actively involved in the Math/Applied Math affinity group. These groups help to build a sense of community for women in science and math. I helped organize and attended pre-registration lunches at the beginning of each semester. These events gave me an opportunity to advise first-year students about their course selections and program requirements. Other academic events include research talks geared toward undergraduate students, and grad school and career panels. These groups also hosted social activities, such as an annual Pi Day dessert social, and community service activities, such as the MathWiSE Girl Scouts Math Workshop.
