Congratulations to Provost Hexter and three faculty members from +UCDavis for being elected into the American Academy of Arts & Sciences. Their achievements and range of interests - from Renaissance music to the beginnings of the Universe - reflect the extraordinary depth and breadth of scholarship on our campus. #GoAgs !

In my recent blog post, I highlight André Knoesen, professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the useful research opportunities he is providing undergraduate students. The students’ hands-on experience brings out their talents and gives them greater confidence as future engineers. #GoAgs   #aggiepride   +UCDavis

Sharing a great video created by UC Davis Athletics. At +UCDavis we support having undergraduate students participate in hands-on research. Through this experience, they are able to take what they learn in the classroom and apply it to real-life scenarios. Happy Friday! #GoAgs   #aggiepride

I had a great time at my coffee hours with students. We talked about undergraduate research, campus climate, mentorship, and had a surprise visit from the city of Davis mascot "Hamburger Patty". Thank you to those in attendance for a your insight and engaging dialogue.  #ucdavis

Last year +UCDavis reached a historic milestone of $786 million in research funding, making it the fourth consecutive year that research grants exceeded $700 million. Through additional funding we are able to not only increase research opportunities for undergraduates, graduate and post graduate scholars, but also develop more start-up companies and commercial opportunities for products based on the work done through research. #GoAgs !

"Never give up, believe in yourself, and always believe you can do what you have dreamed about".

In The Huffington Post I share about the power of mentors, the impact my mentors have had on my life, and some of the efforts +UC Davis has taken to increase representation of women in #STEM.

Sunday's The New York Times featured a story about a +UC Davis expert doing some extraordinary work. +UCDavis pilot scientist Stephen Conley was instrumental in detecting the true nature of the Porter Ranch methane leak in Southern California. Through his work, state officials were able to deal with the leak more effectively. #GoAgs !

Aggies, welcome back to campus! I hope you had a wonderful spring break and were able to spend time with family, friends, or loved ones. I wanted to share with you one recent example of a professor at +UC Davis who overcame great adversity and resistance to advance some extremely important research. His actions remind us to persevere, stay strong, and maintain excellence in all that we do.

Congratulations Dr. Bennet Omalu on being selected to receive the U.S. Sport Academy’s Highest honor. The Dr. Ernst Jokl Sports Medicine Award recognizes Dr. Omalu’s work in the discovery and bringing awareness to chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) - brain damage caused by repetitive concussions. His discovery inspired the movie, “ Concussion." Please join me in congratulating Dr. Omalu. #GoAgs  +UC Davis Health System +UC Davis Medical Center +UC Davis School of Medicine 

A bit under the weather but cheering for our UC Davis Men's Basketball from home while watching on ESPN2. Let's Go Ags! 😀👍🏻🏀
