Alex Knapp Accepted into ME Rising Stars Program!

Congratulations to Williams lab Ph.D. student Alex Knapp for being accepted into the highly selective ME Rising Stars Program at UC Berkeley.

The Rising Stars in Mechanical Engineering workshop supports senior graduate students and postdocs who are considering careers in academia. The purpose of the workshop is for participants to gain career skills, connect with a cohort of peers, and engage with mentors. The third Rising Stars in Mechanical Engineering workshop will be held virtually, via the University of California, Berkeley on Friday, October 2, 2020, as part of the 150 Years of Women at Berkeley celebration. The inaugural Rising Stars in ME workshop was hosted by MIT in 2018, and the second workshop was held by Stanford University in 2019.
