She is the co-founder and co-leader of Conflux—Harvard’s first undergraduate art tech club—Academic Chair of the Harvard Society for Mind Brain Behavior, a Ferris Choral Fellow with the Harvard University Choir, and a Science, Technology, and Society Undergraduate Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School.
