I am a mentor with the Sundial Project at ASU which is an organization geared towards the entrainment and retention of underrepresented minorities in STEM. I work one-on-one with freshmen STEM-majors introducing them to the nature of obtaining a STEM degree as well as scientific research. I develop a semester-length research project that I oversee and help turn into a presentable finished product giving the mentees hands-on experience.
Outreach Days at ASU
I actively participate in the Night of the Open Door and Earth and Space Exploration Day every year hosted at ASU. Here we perform demonstrations such "Salt and Pepper Rocks" which simulate the experiments we do in the EPIC lab. These events are open to the public and we get over ~32,000 visitors ranging from all ages including K-12 students from the Phoenix area.
I have a deep interest in the improvement of communication between scientists and the public. I have produced and been involved in outreach video's with the objective of effectively communicating and promoting science to non-scientists.
I was featured on Vme Televisión as a young Latina in STEM as well as an educational gaming platform, STEM Mio, geared towards middle and high school Latino/a students to promote higher education and careers in STEM.
I have been involved in outreach with Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) in Los Angeles, CA, communicating earthquake hazards and preparedness to local communities as well as other scientists at the SCEC Annual Conference in Palm Springs, CA.
