OUTREACH APPROACH

I am passionate about mentoring the next generation of scientists and strive to encourage and inspire others to investigate and appreciate the world around them.  As a doctoral student and postdoctoral researcher, I have worked to 1) provide undergraduate students with authentic research experiences, 2) enhance the presence of women in science, and 3) encourage community interest and participation in scientific research through interactive activities and lessons at local venues.
