Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The creative research process benefits immensely from a multitude of personal experiences, and we value the rich perspectives, skills, and ideas from all backgrounds in our lab.

At Stanford, we work with equity and inclusion initiatives (SURF: Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship and SERGE: Stanford Exposure to Research and Graduate Education) that develop frameworks to address the shortage of underrepresented minorities (and other identities broadly defined) earning doctoral degrees and pursuing research careers in academia, public, and private sectors. We are committed to cultivating a diverse-equitable student body at Stanford and within Stanford’s School of Engineering to empower all students to become change agents and thought leaders. Our group provides spaces to leverage diversity and excellence so students can thrive and be their full, authentic selves on their academic pathway to becoming leaders in our 21st century workforce.
