I’m an engineer, but more importantly, I’m a people person. As much as I love solving problems with algorithms and optimization, I love solving problems with teams and communities. I see the two as very related whether that’s bringing more analytics to activism, more emotions to engineering, or anywhere in between.
As a queer, hispanic, and pacific islander woman in STEM, I’m passionate about diversity & inclusion. I believe diversity in thought and experience is not only integral to a happy, safe workplace but inextricable from a high-functioning, productive, profitable team. My range of experiences with D&I include diversity in tech, government, non-profits, and engineering societies. I don’t know where my next adventure lies, but I’m interested in any and all opportunities which empower underrepresented people.
