Have been managing the IBM Family Science program since 2018 which encompasses collaborating with over 60 IBM Researchers.  This local educational outreach program targets under served communities and is offered by IBM Research to inspire 4th and 5th grade students to learn about science.

This past year, we transformed the in person sessions (which reached about 100 students) to virtual sessions which reached over 1,000 students.  Our goals are to grow the program to reach a broader/global audience and to invite researchers from various labs to teach classes.

I am passionate about photography and protecting wildlife, I compete with other amateur and professional photographers every month.
