2017 IMSM WORKSHOP AT NCSU -- RALEIGH, NC
I am attending the SAMSI Industrial Math/Stat Modeling Workshop for Graduate Students (IMSM) that will be held July 16th-26th on the North Carolina State University campus. I will be part of the US Naval Research Lab group with project title Stochastic Parameterizations in Numerical Weather Prediction.
2017 SIAM ANNUAL MEETING -- PITTSBURGH, PA
AWM WORKSHOP AT 2017 SIAM ANNUAL MEETING -- PITTSBURGH, PA
I am attending the AWM Workshop on Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing held in conjunction with the SIAM Annual Meeting. I have presented a poster in the AWM Minisymposterium [abstract.]
I work in fluid dynamics, with a special interest on passive tracers spreading in laminar fluid flow. I work under the guidance of Dr. Roberto Camassa and Dr. Richard M. McLaughlin as a member of the Joint Applied Mathematics and Marine Sciences Fluids Lab at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
As a Ph.D. candidate in Mathematics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, I am fortunate to have been able to both assist senior faculty members teaching undergraduate and graduate classes, and personally teach a variety of undergraduate courses as the instructor of record. I am the winner of the 2017 J. Burton Linker Award for Undergraduate Teaching.
Outreach and service
I strongly believe in education as a path to equality. I am invested in creating educational and professional development opportunities for female identifying individuals and minority students in STEM. It is crucial to strengthen the recruitment and retention efforts towards such underrepresented populations, especially in Mathematics. I proudly volunteer for several causes, and have organized some events of my own.
