I am on the board of the Stanford Women in Math Mentoring program.

- Winter 2024: Course Assistant for
*Math 20 (calculus)* - Fall 2023: Teaching Assistant for
*Math 21 (calculus)* - Summer 2023: Instructor for
*Stanford Summer Engineering Academy (linear algebra).*The course was on linear algebra with a focus on inquiry-based learning, group work, and mathematical reading. - Spring 2023: Teaching Assistant for
*Math 21 (calculus)* - Winter 2023: I was the course assistant
*for Math 144 (topology)*

My mathematical art has been exhibited at the the
2020,
2021,
and 2023
JMM Mathematical Art Exhibitions.
It also resides in the MIT 18.900
lecture notes, which I was comissioned to illustrate.

My non-mathematical work has been displayed at the Heckscher Museum, the MIT Compton Gallery, Boston HUBWeek, and the MIT Trashion Show,
and I currently have three murals on display in the MIT tunnels.
I also helped design the MIT 2021 brass rat.

My portfolio is here.

In February 2021, I graduated from MIT with a B.S. in mathematics and minor in computer science.

When I'm not doing math, you can find me knitting, painting, rock climbing, swing dancing, making pickles, hiking, and/or listening to music.
