I am an aspiring physician at Washington University in St. Louis studying chemistry. I am passionate about three things: mentorship and teaching, research, and the STEM field.
CPR/First Aid trained
Mental health/suicide training
I hold 2-3 weekly help sessions, each lasting 1.5 hours, where I help students complete lab reports and learn course material for that week's experiment. I also hold exam review sessions before each major exam and help in grading the exams afterwards.
As a 2970 TA, I will hold weekly office hours, attend all lectures, help grade quizzes and exams, and hold review sessions before major exams.
I am a certified SAT/ACT, biology, chemistry, physics, and math (up to multivariate calculus) tutor through Varsity Tutors. I use the online platform to help prepare 3 clients for their upcoming exams, both standardized and AP. I also pick up clients who need help for a short duration of time before major exams.
I volunteer through Washu HOPE at the downtown Doorways AIDS shelter, where I help underprivileged children (ages 6-14) with math and reading homework. In April of 2018, I began a program called Science Fridays where I conduct science experiments with the children and teach them the basic underlying science. I am currently working with Grace McKee in the Campus Y to establish my own Campus Y organization named Jumpstart Science that will introduce underprivileged students throughout inner city St. Louis to fun experiments and chemistry/biology at a young age.
I am a member of the residential staff for the summer experiences program at Washington University. I serve as a mentor and liaison for high school students taking college courses at Washington University over the summer. My direct responsibilities include enforcing the code of conduct, promoting self advocacy and self care, encouraging and facilitating development of college readiness for the students, and programming social, diversity and inclusion, and cultural immersion events to help students grow emotionally and intellectually. As an evening tutor, I help students taking summer courses with their work. I am a certified calculus, anatomy and physiology, chemistry, biology, and statistics tutor.
I served as an academic tutor at SCGSSM for both years that I attended. I was selected by Dr. Clyde Smith to serve as a physics tutor, holding weekly review and problem solving sessions for AP Physics C students. I was selected by Dr. Joseph Wensink to serve as a writing center tutor, holding weekly hours where I reviewed students' essays and provided feedback on style and organization. I was selected by Dr. Lance Riddle to serve as a chemistry tutor, helping students with biochemistry, analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, and AP chemistry material.
As a resident assistant, I am responsible for the emotional, social, and intellectual well being of 62 sophomores in Myers hall on the South 40 residential area. I enforce university policy on alcohol and drugs, serve as an advocate for my students' mental health and needs, direct students to necessary resources on campus, and encourage a community atmosphere through several means (educational, diversity and inclusion, social justice programs). I am also tasked with mediating and providing professional conflict resolution in a timely fashion and coaching students on useful life and self care skills.
The Amarasinghe lab is an immunology lab that is currently centered on discovering a cure for Ebola and other negative sense ssRNA viruses. In the lab, I have become proficient in cloning and purification techniques, crystallization scoring, crystal screen preparation, and optimization of buffers. I am currently working on a project to characterize the Ebola nucleoprotein.
I currently volunteer at the front desk, utilizing the EPIC software to help direct visitors to patient rooms.
