Currently working on: a multimedia toolkit for STEM educators that shares the stories and science of diverse researchers to empower students of all backgrounds.
Talk to me about (Northern California connections preferred):
- STEM nonprofit management
- funding models
- marketing strategies for STEM resources
My science story: In college, I worked in a developmental neuroscience lab at the same time that I served on a nonprofit committee assessing the local juvenile justice system. The disconnect between the policies and the latest research on the teenage brain was astounding. I realized the power that science wielded wisely can have on crafting a better and more equitable world. It inspired me to shift my target from a career in research to improving the relationship between science, society, and the individual.
