It is important to me to engage with academically marginalized communities more broadly, and help to address the under-representation of women in leadership roles in mathematics, computer science and engineering. In the past, I provided guidance and support for junior female researchers, and plan to continue doing so in the future.
Some of the activities I have been involved more recently:
- Facilitating the workshop Coding Virtual Reality Environments at Tech Savvy 2018 in Pasadena for students to design, code, and explore their own virtual environment, organized in partnership with Girls Who Code, Pasadena City College and the American Association of University Women (US);
- Invited speaker for the Women Mentoring Women series, California Institute of Technology (US).
