Vision Science P.h.D. student Angie Godinez has been named a 2021 Diverse Rising Graduate Scholar, an annual recognition of outstanding minority graduate students poised to make an impact on the academy. Angie, a member of the Levi Lab, is profiled in the March 18, Graduate Education edition of Diverse: Issues In Higher Education. Dr. Dennis Levi, who nominated Angie wrote, "...Angie is awesome -- she is a Chicana, and the first in her family to go to College, where she succeeded in completing both a B.S. in Psychology and an M.S. in Human Factors in Ergonomics. She entered the Ph.D. Program in Vision Science at UC Berkeley in 2015 and was awarded a Chancellor’s Fellowship -- this is an incredibly competitive fellowship, awarded to exceptional applicants who also advance the Regents’ goals for diversification of the academy... She is among the top 3 or 4 graduate students that I’ve worked with in my entire career." Wow Angie! We are so happy for you!
