Good luck Desiree! We’re rooting for you!

The UCI Public Impact Fellowship Competition was developed to support and highlight academically excellent students whose research demonstrates the potential to significantly improve or enrich the lives of people in California and beyond. Congratulations to Desiree Macchia for being named a Public Impact Distinguished Fellow and to May Hui for being named a Public Impact Fellow!

Desiree won the Judge’s Choice Poster award at the 2021 UCISOM Grad Day!
