Volunteer Projects

 stay active on and off campus in a number of organizations related to engineering, and representation of female students in STEM.

Leadership:

During the year 2017, I became the Founding Chair of the Women in Engineering Society at the University of Washington. WIE at UW will represent both students and faculty who encourage and celebrate women in engineering.

I am currently an Officer with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), UW-Seattle Chapter. I have been on the Officer board from 2015, working as the events team lead. I have also been a part of the Officer team, Graduate Student Association (GSA), Dept. of Electrical Engineering @ UW-Seattle for this period.

I work with Society of Women Engineers (SWE) as the Regional Graduate Representative, Region J for GradSWE. I am also the Regional Student Representative (Regions 1-7) for the Robotics and Automation Society (IEEE-RAS).

To build a more inclusive and supportive online community for everyone, I also took on the responsibility of being a campus ambassador for HackHarassment.

Outreach:

During my time at UW, I mentor a number of undergraduate and high school students that come through the lab. I believe it is important to help students navigate their career paths and make the idea of research a little less daunting for those trying to take their first step. Along those lines, I have also spent a lot of time discussing electrical engineering with students and the general public at STEM outreach events.

I volunteer with Time To Invent (TTI), a STEM outreach program that leads third through fifth-grade girls through engineering activities.

Taking forward my love for Robotics, my current outreach involvement also includes serving as the Robotics Workshop Leader for ChickTech-Seattle.

You may have also seen me at Discovery Days, Connect Conference (Women Who Code – Seattle),  Science Olympiad or PAWS on Science.
