Accessibility, Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion work
In summer of 2020, after the murder of George Floyd and the protests that followed, I partnered with other graduate students to co-author a call-to-action document outlining steps for our colleagues and faculty to take towards dismantling anti-Black racism in our department. This led to the development of an action plan which can be read here.
In Spring 2021, I encouraged our department to create a 'pod' and to participate in the URGE (Unlearning Racism in Geoscience) program a "community-wide journal-reading and policy-design curriculum to help Geoscientists unlearn racism and improve accessibility, justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (AJEDI) in our discipline".

Developed an accessible virtual field experience during Fall 2020. You can access the field experience here.
Invited and hosted Dr. Anita Marshall, the Director of Operations for the International Association for Geoscience Diversity (IAGD), for the EPS department Bromery Lecture series in Fall 2020. To learn more about the IAGD visit here.
Established lab mentorship relationship with the Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) program through the Whiting School of Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.
