She started her career at UC Berkeley, has held many roles in the community college system and brings 32 years of higher education professional experience to the position.
Our next #SeniorSpotlight is Derek Lee, a computer engineering major and Class of 2020 graduate!
One of Derek’s favorite memories from his time at UC Davis was working with the College of Engineering and his professors to sponsor SacHacks, the first major intercollegiate hackathon in the Sacramento area, as that made him feel closer to the faculty.
Derek starts his software engineering job in January and his advice to incoming engineering students is to focus on extracurricular activities if you do not plan on going to grad school.
Our first #SeniorSpotlight is Zoren Habana, a mechanical and aerospace engineering Class of 2020 graduate! Some of Zoren’s favorite memories were made in the Bainer Hall computer lab, where he solidified many friendships with fellow engineers.
“I would spend nights at the computer lab finishing up homework and projects, but it wasn't so bad since I was around my friends and colleagues,” said Zoren. “I cherish the memories I made in the computer lab because of how much time I spent there struggling with my colleagues to get work done. Misery definitely loves company.”
With an increase in cognitive and neurological disorders such as dementia, stroke and Alzheimer’s, researchers worldwide are actively seeking pathways to help people restore neural function and improve their quality of life. The UC Davis College of Engineering announces the launch of the UC Davis Center for Neuroengineering & Medicine (NE&M), an integrated, multi-disciplinary effort that seeks to repair, restore and augment human capacity to benefit society.
