I served as the graduate student President and Secretary of the Brown University AWM Student Chapter in 2015-2017 and 2014-2015, respectively. The chapter seeks to connect and support students and faculty interested in math and mathematical applications. Each semester, the Chapter holds professional development panels, math lectures, events to highlight math applications, discussions of news articles, and open office hours before finals.
In 2016, the Brown AWM Chapter received the Scientific Excellence Award from the national AWM Executive Committee. The award is in recognition of the WINRS conference that the Chapter organized.

I was a lead organizer of the Women's Intellectual Network Research Symposium (WINRS): A Meeting of Mathematical Minds. This one day conference featured plenary talks, student talks, panel on effective mentoring, poster session, AWM Student Chapter discussion, and tutorials.
The conference objective was to introduce students and faculty, in particular women, to ongoing research in New England and bridge gaps between universities. We sought to connect women in similar mathematical fields, as well as promote collaboration and share strategies for addressing issues facing women and other underrepresented groups in math. The conference welcomed everyone, regardless of gender identity. This conference was organized in Cooperation with the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) and supported the Non-Discrimination Statement of the Association for Women in Mathematics.

When I am not working, I can usually be found outside. I enjoy long distance running, hiking, biking, backpacking, snowshoeing, and other outdoor activities.
