Congratulations to UWIN undergraduate fellow Camille Birch, who was named one of the 2017 Husky 100! Each year. the Husky 100 award “recognizes 100 UW undergraduate and graduate students from Bothell, Seattle and Tacoma in all areas of study who are making the most of their time at the UW”.
Students named to the Husky 100 “actively connect what happens inside and outside of the classroom and apply what they learn to make a difference on campus, in their communities and for the future. Through their passion, leadership and commitment, these students inspire all of us to shape our own Husky Experience.”
Camille says: “My work in neural engineering research has inspired me to pursue graduate school and a career in this field. I also strongly believe that the scientific community should be as diverse as the communities for which we do research, and I am passionate about how engineering education could help promote the development of students who will become leaders working against prejudice and discrimination in STEM.”
Camille was awarded a UWIN undergraduate fellowship in 2016, to support her research in the lab of Eb Fetz. Her research used the Neurochip-3, a powerful new head-mounted electrophysiology system, to investigate functional neural connectivity between the prefrontal cortex and the motor cortex. She is particularly interested in neural engineering research contributing to advances in rehabilitation medicine.
