Mission: The Hispanic Engineers and Scientists, a UC Berkeley Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) Chapter, are determined to increase the number of culturally responsible engineers and scientists who succeed academically, lead professionally, and contribute passionately to society.
Vision: Hispanic Engineers and Scientists' vision is a world where Latinxs are highly respected, influential leaders in the STEM industry and academia settings.
My Role: As Academic Vice President, I have organized a Winter Academic Training (WAT) Camp, created a Spring Graduate Series, constructed an academic database, and communicated resources (i.e. scholarships, internships, research).

UC Berkeley D-Lab -- Machine Learning Working Group Member
August 2018 - December 2018
D-Lab provides cross-disciplinary resources for in-depth consulting and advising, access to staff support, and training and provisioning for software and other infrastructure needs. Networking with other Berkeley centers and facilities and with our departments and schools, we offer our services to researchers across the disciplines and underwrite the breadth of excellence of Berkeley’s graduate programs and faculty research. D-Lab builds networks through which Berkeley researchers can connect with users of social science data in the off-campus world.
As a Machine Learning Working Group Member, I studied various machine learning methods (supervised and unsupervised) to gain more exposure on algorithms. This was a learning space for anyone interested in Machine Learning in R or Python. Each member volunteered to give a presentation on an algorithm.
