Teaching and Leadership

University of California, Berkeley, US

ME 130 “Design of Planar Machinery”, Teaching Assistant Fall 2015, Fall 2016

Developed the weekly lab practicum (class of 75 students) and led the discussion sessions, teaching students the principles of mechanism design, 3D computer modelling & motion analysis.

ME 122, “Processing of Materials in Manufacturing”, Teaching Assistant Spring 2016

  • Taught the principles of traditional manufacturing processes (casting, forging, rolling), and rapid prototyping techniques.

  • Assisted students in their product design projects regarding practical application of manufacturing and material selection processes.

  • Reviewer: Langmuir, ACS Omega, Journal of Materials Science, Polymer, Applied Surface Science

  • I have run a weekly Nanotechnology colloquium event for the past three years now. The event hosts speakers from both academic backgrounds and industrial labs. The talk series serves as a platform for graduate students to present their work and receive critical feedback.

  • As an active member of the EECS graduate women association, I acted as mentor to help female graduate students transition to graduate school and advised them on coping with academic stress.
