Advocacy

Throughout my time studying astrophysics, I have also become involved in mentorship and leadership within my communities. Mentorship has been extremely important in my career, and so I hope to also serve as a mentor for others. Through involvement on my own campus, I aspire to improve the quality of life for various groups, as well as graduate students as a whole.

As an undergraduate, I served on the board of UCSD Undergraduate Women in Physics, where I started a mentorship program between graduate undergraduate students. At Caltech, I founded Women in Physics, Math, and Astronomy in Fall 2016, serving as its first president until Spring 2018. I also organized the 2017 Caltech astronomy prospective visit, and was elected secretary of the Caltech Graduate Student Council for the 2017-2018 academic year. In my short time at Caltech, I am grateful that my efforts have been recognized by the administration.
