Departmental Service

 

I have been fortunate enough to serve as the Secretary of Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), UW Chapter, Seattle, WA in the 2019-20 academic year. I was elected by 1500+ peers to represent Computer Science & Engineering undergraduates. As the Secretary I used to co-organize 5+ quarterly events, register 200+ members yearly, and administer internal, departmental and national chapter correspondence. Also, I coordinated CSE Research Night 2020 for 150+ undergraduates featuring presentations and interactive panel on importance and opportunities in computing research.

Community Service

 

I am serving a Software/Web Developer from May 2020 to present in the COVID-19 Literature Surveillance Team (LST) in Seattle, WA.  I am overhauling the navigation of the website so that the content featured in daily published reports can be in more user friendly text format. Also, I am improving the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) so that it is more useful for clinicians by organizing the elements of the report by practice area/medical specialty (like cardiology, pediatrics, etc) and making the site searchable. 

Mentoring

I have served as a Big (Mentor) for the Big/Little mentorship program during April to June 2020, and have provided 1:1 mentoring to a new Regular Admit student of Allen School.

Mentor Power for Success (MPFS) Program, Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity, UW Seattle

I have served as a Program Lead for the MPFS mentorship program during September to December 2019. As a Program Lead I provided mentoring training, advising and weekly feedback to 16 mentor-protégé pairs from minority and first-generation backgrounds (i.e. EOP, TRIO) to help first-year college students navigate the university. I also coordinated event logistics, secured panelists/speakers, marketing, and developed programming for 8 events per quarter on undergraduate research, and leadership development; events serve up to 60 students at a time.

 

I have also served as a Peer Mentor for the MPFS mentorship program during September to December 2018.
