Three UC Santa Barbara scientists are among the one hundred fifty women nationwide who have been invited to the 2020 Rising Stars in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) Workshop. Esmat Farzana, a postdoctoral researcher in the Materials Department, Yating Wan, a postdoc in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, and computer science PhD student Deeksha Dangwal will participate in the prestigious workshop intended to increase the number of women interested in pursuing academic careers in computer science, computer engineering, and electrical engineering. Participants were selected based on their academic excellence, their interest in a faculty career in the EECS discipline, and their commitment to advancing equity and inclusion. UC Berkeley will host the annual event virtually from November 9-10. Attendees will present their research, interact with faculty from top-tier universities, and receive advice for advancing their careers. read more
