Outreach Acitivities
- Mentored a Civil Engineering undergraduate student in partnership with East LA College’s STEM Academy. Through a 10 week long program, the student worked on a research project that aimed at learning human’s thermal preferences by sensing the performance of human thermoregulation system, Summer 2014 and 2015.

- Mentored Two LAUSD Teachers as Part of the USC Viterbi NSF Research Experience for Teachers Program. The teachers participated in research by exploring energy related technological advancements in commercial and residential buildings, and how human energy related behaviors influence building energy performance. Specifically, they took part in experiments, where we modeled personalized thermal comfort preferences for occupants in a shared office space. The teachers worked together to integrate their research experience with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and they will be implementing their lesson plans in 2014-2015 school year.
