I am committed to working towards a more inclusive field for the next generation of biostatisticians. To that end, I hold multiple roles as part of the Caucus for Women in Statistics and am a member of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Bridge to Biostats committee, which seeks to foster a more inclusive biostats community by creating programs to increase awareness of and interest in the field of Biostatistics among New York City public high school students. Related presentations, articles and memberships are highlighted below.
