Mentorship Experience

I mentor undergraduate women in science and new teaching assistants through the UBC Women in Science Mentorship Program

women in science 

I’ve mentored five women in their first through third year of undergraduate science programs.  I help them navigate their academics, find research positions, and apply to internships, jobs, and graduate school.  We also dedicate time to discuss the unique challenges women face in their scientific careers.

teaching assistant mentorship

I’ve worked as a mentor to new teaching assistants, typically working with 7-10 new TAs throughout a semester to discuss their experiences with teaching: what they think they do well and what they find challenging.  I observe them instructing a lab or tutorial, and meet with them to provide feedback.
