Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

In 2019 I had the honor to be the recipient of the UCLA Career Commitment to Diversity DEI Award.

  • I am the chair of the Physics-diversity committee (since 2017) and Astronomy-diversity committee (since 2016). Our goal is to raise awareness for inclusion and diversity in our department, and we strive to diversify our student, postdoc, and faculty population. We hold regular meetings and sponsored workshops and other activities.
  • We (Physics-diversity committee) have implemented a new UCLA graduate Physics Bridge-program in collaboration with the American Physics Society (APS).
  • Member of the UCLA Physical Sciences Diversity Committee (since 2016)
  • Mentor in the Cal-Bridge program (since 2015)
