Service

  • I hosted laboratory tours and demos on Cal Day (2013 & 2014) to general public, particularly high school students.
  • I have run a weekly Nanotechnology colloquium event for the past three years now. The event hosts speakers from both academic backgrounds and industrial labs. The talk series serves as a platform for graduate students to present their work and receive critical feedback.
  • As an active member of the EECS graduate women association, I acted as mentor to help female graduate students transition to graduate school and advised them on coping with academic stress.
