Why I am at SCOPE: 

As one of the first generation college students in my family, I knew first hand how public education might bring tremendous impacts that change lives for the better. As I had the opportunity to come to the United States for higher education, I further experienced how quality education had broadened my horizon. I strongly believe in SCOPE’s mission to advance high-quality, equitable education systems for all children in the United States and abroad.  Working at SCOPE allows me to indirectly support SCOPE to make meaningful education accessible and possible for every child in the world.

Recent Contributions: 
  • Ensuring SCOPE remains fiscally sound by managing its complex funding sources and budgets. 
  • Collaborating internally with Stanford partner groups and externally with funders in order to coordinate research administration services, systems and processes to prepare proposal budgets and properly setup accounts in Stanford. 
  • Monitoring all SCOPE project activities in order to fulfill all requirements and regulations, from both Stanford and sponsor perspectives.
