Effective communication and outreach are a key aspect of promoting innovation. I enjoy developing these skills while sharing my passion for science with others.
Outreach to decision-makers and the public
- Participated in a planning workshop on Regional Water Reliability Enhancement, hosted by Water in the West program, the Bill Lane Center for the American West, and the NSF Engineering Research Center ReNUWIt at Stanford.
- Collaborated and worked closely with local Bay Area water agencies in defining research priorities and methods.

Outreach to scientists, researchers, and industry partners
Outreach to students
- Performed over 100 hours of education and outreach to students from 5th to 12th grade, including leading interactive lessons about water and stormwater management, and creating an educational video about environmental engineering careers.
- Mentored several masters-level students and interns pursuing environmental research.
- Served as a teaching assistant for the summer course "Foundations of Water Science and Engineering", developed course materials and supported students from high school and undergraduate institutions visiting Stanford.
- Supported minority students interested in pursuing a graduate education, serving in information panels, and providing feedback on applications to graduate school and to fellowships.
