Leadership


WOOF3D

Project Manager - June 2019 to present

Team Lead - January 2018 to January 2020


WOOF3D

In WOOF3D, the 3D-printing club consisting of over 100 members at my university, I teach students about how to do 3D-modeling, 3D-printing, and more complex digital fabrication projects. As the Project Manager, I also mentor and advise more experienced members on fun hands-on projects—such as printing with chocolate—and more complex projects like 3D-printing topographical maps of mountains using geo-data from satellites. Some examples of projects can be seen above (top left: modeling outreach materials for synthetic biology, bottom left: 3D-printed topographical map, center: syringe printer built from scratch, right: a workshop we led on building a 3D-printer).

Project Indoor Farm

Adviser - November 2021 to present

President - June 2019 to November 2021


Project IF

I founded Project Indoor Farm, an indoor farming club that has grown to have over 45 members, because of my interest in promoting sustainability. The club focuses on teaching the university community about the benefits of hydroponics over traditional soil-based agriculture and bringing awareness to other prominent sustainability problems in the world through seminars, guest speaker talks, and hands-on projects. I have set up an indoor hydroponics farm that grows roughly 20lbs of lettuce per week to be a unique undergraduate-run space for students to get used to working on low-pressure engineering and research projects before working with faculty and graduate students directly.

iGEM

Operations Manager - February 2019 to December 2019


Project IF

The International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition is a worldwide synthetic biology competition. As the operations manager for the University of Washington iGEM team,I facilitated communication across our eight subteams (wetlab, simulations, design, fundraising, outreach, web development, human practices, and collaborations) consisting of over 50 members total to ensure there is sufficient progress to meet our competition criteria. I also worked closely with the fundraising team to raise over $16,000 to support competition and wetlab expenses. Our project was to utilize chemically induced dimerization to design a biosenor for cannabidiol. More information on the project can be found in the research tab or you can go to the archived 2019 Team Washington iGEM website.
