Advising, Workshops, Meetings
As a postdoc I've also advised one student from Howard University in a semester-long project, after which he was accepted as a rising sophomore to a summer NSF REU program, and a University of Maryland undergraduate in a year-long project (check her out below, preparing our experiment for the piston cylinder, and here!), after which we was accepted to the Cornell REU program to work on exoplanet atmospheres, how cool! Look out for her published work soon.
I helped organize the !mpostor Syndrome workshop at the Winter 2015 AAS Meeting, and have since given a version of the workshop at Carnegie DTM and various other institutions.
Applying to graduate school in astronomy can be scary and confusing, at least it was for me. I put together a presentation of information and tips about this process, as well as some great resources created by many others, here. I also suggest reading Dr. Chanda Prescod-Weinstein's posts here, here, and here.
One of the best experiences of my professional life was attending the Inclusive Astronomy meeting in June 2015 at Vanderbilt University. You can check out my Storify for more information and some of the discussions that occured at the meeting. I also keep a list of resources related to equity, inclusion, and diversity here.
