Outreach

I am highly passionate about and committed to increasing participation of women and diversity in general in the field of computer science. This is why I have continuously engaged into outreach activities such as those listed below:

Workshop organizer and presenter at the “Expanding Your Horizons in Science and Mathematics” career conference for middle school girls, yearly since 2012.

Educational collaboration with John Adams high school in South Bend, IN, yearly since 2014.

Panelist for a meeting organized by Graduate Society of Women Engineers (Grad-SWE) at University of Notre Dame, November 2017.

Panelist for the “Tenure Track Master Plan” event organized by the Postdoctoral Women’s Committee at University of Notre Dame, July 2017.

Participation in University of Notre Dame’s Building Bridges Mentoring Program for underrepresented students, 2016-2017.

Panelist for a meeting organized by Graduate Society of Women Engineers (Grad-SWE) at University of Notre Dame, September 2016.

Panelist for the documentary “Code: Debugging the Gender Gap,” University of Notre Dame, November 2015.

Member of the “Women in Bioinformatics” panel, ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Biomedical Informatics (ACM BCB), Newport Beach, CA, USA, September 20-23, 2014.
