All kids have a big potential inside of them. As scientists, part of our job is to sparkle the love for science in their hearts.
Currently, I am one of the volunteer mentors in the Girls Educating Girls program which is a project that aims to provide research experience for women enrolled in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields at universities across Puerto Rico.
Additionally, I have recently joined the meriSTEM team. I am very enthusiastic about sharing some cool information about seismology and help school teachers to improve their approach on teaching science to their students in the classroom!
I am demonstrator in the following courses:
- EMSC2022: Introduction to Global Geophysics. Convener: Meghan S. Miller. Lecturers: Dave Heslop and Meghan S. Miller. Upon completion of this course, students are expected to have a deeper understanding of the Earth’s internal structure and the main concepts applied in seismology, geohazard, and geodynamics.
- EMSC1008: EARTH: The Chemistry and Physics of our Planet. Conveners of this course are Caroline Eakin and Andrew Berry. In the geophysics module, students gain familiarity with plate tectonics and introductory knowledge of geophysics and mathematics (e.g. isostatic calculations, triangulating earthquake locations, plate motion vectors, and circuits).
Before starting my Ph.D., I spent almost a year working as a private tutor, and teaching maths and physics to kids from Years 7 to 12.
