With my research, I aim to work towards increasing student access to a quality and humane STEM education at the secondary and higher education levels. Growing up in California’s Central Valley, I realized a huge disparity in educational opportunities and quality when I moved to the Bay Area to attend university. Within the EE and CS fields, marginalized students are faced with numerous challenges that their majority peers may not have. I want to better understand how we might create culturally relevant pedagogies for a broader set of students, increase access points for students to engage with instruction, and build an empathetic community and humane culture within undergraduate engineering departments.
