Outreach activities

2020

I will be speaking at Liverpool Pint of Science 2020 which should hopefully be held this autumn.

I coordinate the Liverpool pod of 500WomenScientists, an international community of women committing towards inclusivity in science.

2019

I participated in a series of meeting with high-school students near my hometown. We discussed about science, my research and career trajectory, what to expect from university and graduate school.

I have co-funded the Liverpool pod of 500WomenScientists, an international community of women committing towards inclusivity in science.

2018

I am among the awardees of a NumFOCUS Grant for community education and engagement.

I co-organized a workshop on MDAnalysis, at Northwestern University. MDAnalysis is a free and open source Python package that allows to analyze trajectories from molecular dynamics simulations in the most common formats. We provided financial support for students belonging from underrepresented groups interested in attending the event.

I presented at Wonder and Skepticism, a monthly series held at a music venue in Chicago where scientists talk about their work with patrons over beer(s).

I volunteered for Soapbox Science in Chicago.
