Current aDVOCACY Projects

External Affairs Board, MIT Graduate Student Council

As of May 2019, I am currently the Vice Chair of the MIT GSC External Affairs Board. Previously, I was an At-Large member of the External Affairs Board. In both roles, I work with the GSC to develop public outreach programming and federal advocacy plans related to graduate student life and research.

Past Advocacy Projects

Students for Science (maY 2018 - aPRIL 2019)

I was the Director of Public Engagement for Students for Science, a March for Science youth-focused subgroup that aims to catalyze youth science engagement and evidence-based policy advocacy. You can check out our website here.

March for Science - Youth Advocacy Summit (May 2018 - July 2018)

I am working with the March for Science to plan a Youth Advocacy Summit in Chicago on July 7-8th, 2018! I will be organizing and moderating sessions focused on science communication and science education based on my experiences. Feel free to reach out if you’d like to partner with us to host a session!

Cornell Undergraduate Biomedical Engineering Society (jANUARY 2017 - mAY 2018)

During my time at Cornell, I co-founded and was co-President of the Cornell Undergraduate BMES for a year and a half. Because I am a member of the inagural BME undergraduate class at Cornell, we did not have an existing society or community to be a part of, unlike other majors, so I decided to make one with some of my friends! We partnered with the BME Department and other organizations on campus to host professional development sessions, student panels on BME, recuiting efforts for Engineering Admissions, social events for current BMEs, and outreach opportunities in the local community. While I graduated in May 2018 and am no longer directly involved in the leadership, you can stay up to date with that Cornell BMES is doing on our Facebook page.
