With flexibility comes possibility
Berkeley Engineering fosters a community centered around serving the greater good and educating the next generation of scholars.
That’s why we invest in top talent. To make that happen, our newest faculty receive competitive startup packages that enable them to realize their high-impact research.
Take Maya Carrasquillo, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering. With the Huelskamp Fellowship, she quickly grew the number of student workers in the Liberatory Infrastructures Lab — and expanded the scope of her team’s research from stormwater systems to broadly thinking about infrastructural justice. “It’s opened up new avenues of research,” she said, “and it’s expanded our ability to support students that are truly amazing and share a similar vision for their research and their role as engineers.”
Funding for these faculty fellowships supports our newest members as they make important discoveries and mentor students. Through your contribution, you can have a profound impact.
