I was named an Amazon AI4Science Fellow of the 2023 class! The AI4Science Fellows program is a result of a partnership between Caltech and Amazon around machine learning and artificial intelligence. The program recognizes graduate students and postdoctoral scholars that have had a remarkable impact in these areas, and in their application to fields beyond computer science

Outreach and Mentoring
- (2023) Sustainable Energy Activity Lab (SEAL): I am a mentor for high school clubs where I work with students on a year-long sustainable energy project related to microbial fuel cells. We meet weekly for labs, lectures, and discussions.
- (2023) FUTURE Ignited: I am a peer advisor and accountability partner to help undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds to apply to graduate school, where I meet with students weekly to discuss progress and advise on graduate school applications from Sep - Dec.
- (2023) First-year Success Research Institute (FSRI): I was a research mentor for incoming historically excluded and/or marginalized first-year undergraduate students where I worked with 3 students on a research project.
- (2021-2023) Caltech: I mentored the following undergraduate students (U) and junior graduate students (G) during my time at Caltech: Agnim Agarwal (U, 2023) ; Lauren Conger (G, 2021-2022) ; Tinashe Handina (G, 2022-2023) ; Eric Ma (U, 2023); Patrick Martinez (U, 2023).
- (2018-2020) Muir High School, Pasadena, CA: I tutored high school students in Math and Science as part of an outreach initiative of the Caltech Y Rise Program.
- (2017-2018) Caltech: I helped run outreach programs for the CMS department at Caltech, including the Pasadena Science and Art Night, Tech Savvy Science Day for Girls at the Pasadena City College, and facilitate talks organized by Caltech Center for Diversity.
- (2013-2016) Georgia Tech: I was a Peer-led Undergraduate Study (PLUS) Leader for Physics I,II and Calculus I, II, III, where I worked with faculties to develop innovative and interactive weekly review sessions to help students better understand challenging course materials.
- (2014-2016) Georgia Tech: I was a volunteer instructor for the Georgia Tech Invention Studio, committing at least 3 hours per week teaching students how to use the fabrication machines for their engineering projects. I also host outreach workshops for local high schools to engage underrepresented groups in STEM.
