Business Development Fellows
Denise Bronner earned a Ph.D. in microbiology and immunology from the University of Michigan. Her postdoctoral research involves generating novel and amenable therapeutics that increase the prosperity of individuals who suffer from impaired microbiome-related diseases. This interview was conducted in fall 2017.
After completing his graduate studies in Spain, Gerard Arino Estrada spent a year researching in Hamburg, Germany. Estrada is currently a postdoctoral scholar at UC Davis, focused on novel radiation detector technologies for medical imaging.
Jordan Greer has a B.S. in civil engineering from Lehigh University and an M.S. in civil engineering from UC Davis. Her current research incorporates microbiology into civil engineering and involves the use of bacteria in soil to prevent seepage and create sustainability.
Jenna Harvestine is pursuing a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering. She graduated from the Milwaukee School of Engineering and has experience as a research and development intern with the High Performance team at Rust-Oleum.
Jose Hernandez is a second-year master’s student in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. He earned his bachelor of science in bio-engineering from the University of California, Merced. His research focuses on reducing the amount of greenhouse gas allowed to reach the upper atmosphere.
Bamboo Huff is a postdoctoral researcher at UC Davis. She completed her Ph.D. in neuroscience at Peking University. Huff’s current research involves the role of the medial superior temporal cortex in visual motion, and she plans to find a job in data science or product development in the future.
Sara Pace is a postdoctoral scholar. She completed a Ph.D. in biological systems engineering, a master’s in architectural engineering, a bachelor’s in architectural engineering, and a B.S. in biological engineering. Her current research involves the use of shipping containers to convert food waste into electricity, heat and fertilizer.
Aaron Selfridge earned his B.S. from UC San Diego and is pursuing a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering. His current research focuses on medical imaging, and the development of a new Positron Emission Tomography system for imaging rats and mice.
Christopher Weiss is a postdoctoral scholar at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. He received his B.S. and Ph.D. in molecular virology and microbiology from the University of Pittsburgh.
