Professor Ashlie Martini was looking for the chance to make a difference when she took a post at UC Merced.
Martini, now a professor in the UC Merced School of Engineering, was most recently a faculty member at Purdue University, home to about 40,000 students. But she wanted to work at a university where she could be more involved and have more impact.
The University of California’s 10th and newest campus was the perfect fit.
“It’s a great opportunity for me to be a part of what UC Merced will become,” said Martini, who is originally from San Diego. “I’m thrilled to be here.”
