Created as a new opportunity for direct faculty participation in improving the inclusive excellence goals of our college, BOLD's Fellows will help us engage with faculty and develop and support our work in inclusive excellence.
Tisone Professor • Dean Emeritus of the College of Engineering and Applied Science
Chemical and Biological Engineering
BOLD Fellowship Goals: Using faculty mentorship as a means of supporting students who are excited about CU Engineering, plus mentoring faculty who also are invested in inclusion and diversity efforts that support student success. Research: Biotechnology and Biofuels, Complex Fluids, Membrane Separations
BOLD Fellowship Goals: Connecting minority students to work in the most elite laboratories, research centers and institutes in Tier 1 research insitutions. Research: Forensic Environmental Microbiology, Biochemistry and Toxicology of Natural and Engineered Systems: Aerobiology, Disinfection and Corrosion
BOLD Fellowship Goals: Supporting whole-student success by helping them to identify their passion and interests for long-term career success and planning and to learn about physical wellness as a complement to professional success. An additional goal is to explore how mentoring programs could improve the peer-to-peer climate in CEAS. Research: Urban Air Quality, Indoor Air Quality, Bioaerosols, Air Pollution Control Technologies including Infection Control
BOLD Fellowship Goals: Championing community engaged engineering, bringing engineering to local communities through STEM activities they may not otherwise access, and fostering a gender-inclusive environment in ECEE by promoting the Strengths tools with students. Research: Assistive Technology, Undergraduate Engineering Education, Computational Electromagnetics, High Performance Computing, Strengths-based Leadership, Women in Engineering
BOLD Fellowship Goals: Mentoring 3-5 students underrepresented in computer science and engineering to present research at academic conferences and to launch a faculty reading group that studies and discuss best practices support diversity and inclusion in the classroom. Office Hours: Tuesday, 9–11 a.m. and Wednesday, 9–10 a.m.
Associate Professor • Undergraduate Chair • Hudson Moore Professor
BOLD Fellowship Goals: Conducting surveys and focus groups to identify specific needs around retention and climate in mechanical engineering as well as launching a career mentoring lunch series and a peer mentoring program within the department. Research: Characterization of Materials, Biological Tissue Office Hours: Thursday, 9–11 a.m.
BOLD Fellowship Goals: Increasing awareness and participation of underrepresented minorities and people with disabilities in computing and engineering by hosting a speaker series that invites successful computer science and engineering researchers who have disabilities to share their personal and professional experiences. Research: Accessible User Interfaces, Mobile Human-Computer Interaction Office Hours: Tuesday and Thursday 2–3 p.m.
BOLD Fellowship Goals: Leading a faculty and student team to expand research on issues facing non-majority students in CEAS and sharing findings with the college community and initiating multicultural celebrations that honor non-majority cultures that are part of the college. Research: Air Quality Modeling, Atmospheric Chemistry, Air Pollution Source Apportionment, Environmental Law and Management Office Hours: Tuesday, 11–12 p.m.
