Aspiring Scholars Directed Research Program (ASDRP)
August 2021 - Present
I conduct research on quantum machine learning for drug discovery under Dr. Larry McMahan. My team and I designed a quantum machine learning algorithm to generate novel molecules based on existing small organic molecules. Thus far, I have published one paper to the Journal of Emerging Investigators (JEI) with an additional paper accepted pending presentation changes and presented at the West Coast Biological Science Undergraduate Research Conference and IEEE Quantum Week 2023.
Boston University RISE Internship

As part of Boston University's RISE Internship program, I conducted computational microscopy research under Professor Lei Tian and Ph. D student Qianwan Yang. At the end of the program, I presented my research at the 2023 RISE Research Symposium and MIT Undergraduate Research Technical Conference.
January 2023 - March 2023
I organized an all-girls hackathon in partnership with Girl Scouts of Greater New York for 37 girls with the goal of promoting coding and hacking to girls from marginalized backgrounds. I was responsible for hosting the Introduction to Web Development Workshop and planning the logisitcs of the event.
May 2023 - August 2023
I organized an all-girls hackathon in San Francisco at Sentry for 52 girls with the goal of promoting coding and hacking to girls from marginalized backgrounds. I was responsible for hosting the Introduction to Web Development Workshop and outreach to local STEM-promoting organizations like Girl Scouts, Space Cookies, and Boys and Girls Club of America.
Univeristy of Iowa SSTP
June 2022 - August 2022
As part of University of Iowa's SSTP, I conducted research on the impact of COVID-19 on social mobility under Professor Caglar Koylu and Dr. Hoeyun Kwon at University of Iowa's Geo-Social Lab and presented my research at the 2022 SSTP Research Symposium.
Brain Tumor Classification
July 2021 - August 2021
As a Python Research Program student, I conducted research on brain tumors and trained a convolutional neural network to perform classification on brain MRIs with the four categories being healthy brains, brains with pituitary tumors, brains with meningiomas, and brains with gliomas.
May 2021 - September 2021
A social organization dedicated to narrowing the gender gap in business and to educating young girls the fundamentals of business.
