I am a Co-Founder and Program Director of Project Field Equity (Fe), a graduate student led initiative to decrease sexual harassment and assault during field work and other off-campus learning experiences. We recently attended the 2018 meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative University Campaign to network with other student organizers and build support for our project. You can learn more about our work at our website.
Several projects have allowed me to share my love and knowledge of science with wider audiences. Joyce Chery (fellow IB PhD candidate and Rothfels lab member) and I were featured on two episodes of Science IRL, a science communication YouTube series. Check out the videos to learn more about how and why we collect plants!
I have also developed workshops for graduate students, post-docs, and professors on using R in phylogenetic comparative methods and biogeography. Feel free to contact me or see my GitHub for files and code associated with these workshops.
I am also involved in several science mentoring programs. See below for information on these programs.
I previously taught Principals in Phylogenetics in the Integrative Biology Department here in UC Berkeley, a graduate level survey of tree building and comparative methods. Check out our course website to follow along with the lectures, readings, and labs. I have previously taught Climate Change and the Future of California, an interdisciplinary seminar for undergraduate students, and Bio1b, an introductory undergraduate course on ecology, evolution, and diversity.
