Participating in Broader Engagement was way more fun than I expected! Sharing breakfast with exciting people was an awesome, and frankly a unique opportunity to talk about many of the questions I had at the time about life and research. The program is incredibly well-organized and easy to recommend to anybody, student or early-career. The positive experiences I had at...

I am Pulkita Jain, an international student studying chemical engineering at Santa Barbara City College. I applied to the BE program and SIAM CSE19 conference through Phi Theta Kappa. I was apprehensive to apply because I am merely a city college student who was majoring in chemical engineering. When I was told that I will not only get to be...

The best part of the BE program was meeting people from diverse backgrounds and seeing the same passion about science and math that I have. Being able to open our discussions to a broader conversation with group leaders was insightful and encouraging. A program like this is essential to the future of math and science. Students need to see that there...

First and foremost, I want to enthusiastically express that as a PhD student who has participated in a good number of conference experiences over my student career, I consider the Broader Engagement (BE) program experience to have been absolutely the most valuable and empowering conference experience I have had to date as a student. The BE program’s thoughtful mix of...

(envision Nighthawks by Edward Hopper). For an introvert from the south, the surreality of the situation is ridiculous, and yet I feel at home. I’ve found my...

I think my position was relatively unique in being treated like faculty while being closer, in age and development, to many of the undergraduate students. I was able to move freely between both groups and this was helpful for asserting where I am in life. For me, the most influential part was the mentor-mentee matchmaking. The dedicated, conscious effort to...

I first became involved in the SRP Program when my advisor, Dr. Xinlian Liu, recommended me for the summer research internship at Berkeley lab. So far, my experience at the lab has been great. I feel very fortunate to be able to work on real-world applications of distributed machine learning on supercomputers with the HPC professionals at LBNL's NERSC! There...
