Associate Councilor RepresentativeEmail:
As a freshman in college, I constantly questioned whether or not physics was the right path for me. It was not until that summer, when I embarked on my first research experience abroad in China, that I realized the vast opportunity this field has to offer. Since that exposure, I have made sustained efforts throughout my undergraduate career to connect others to physics and each other. I served a year term as my university’s SPS President, during which I started a peer mentoring program for incoming majors. Through this program, more young women and minorities were encouraged to stay in physics. Together, we founded a Women in Physics group. After transferring to the University of Colorado Denver, I founded the Physics Identity & Expression (PIE) club, which leads inclusive outreach programs and hosts interactive social events for students. Currently, I am serving a year term as the PIE Club president, as well as representing my physics department as the ambassador to our university’s CLAS Dean’s Student Council. Beyond these involvements, I work part time instructing K-12 children in the fundamentals of programming and am a Teaching Assistant for General Physics Lab I. Looking forward, I will be starting my senior thesis on neutron flux detection in relation to the SuperCDMS experiment and plan to apply to graduate schools next fall.
