Congratulations to Carlos Gonzalez (BIOL), Sarah Lopez (BIOL), Gabriel Padilla (BIOL), and Mandi Roe (BIOT) on advancing to the 27th annual CSU Student Research Competition, held at Cal Poly Pomona on May 10-11! CSM is proud that you will be representing us.
Physics major Anne Marie Jensen is the RAP Coordinator for San Diego EMS-Rural/Metro of San Diego and San Diego Fire-Rescue Department and was selected as the 2012 Paramedic of the Year by her peers. She co-authored an article on San Diego's eRAP system with James Dunford, M.D. in the Journal of Emergency Medical Services.
Math majors Jesus Hernandez, Derek Hoeft, Rani Hermiz, Kenny Courser, Jason Hultman, and Alex Toole attended the American Mathematical Society/Mathematical Assocation of America's AMS-MAA Joint Meetings Annual Conference in San Diego with Dr. Andre Kundgen and Dr. Shahed Sharif.
Dr. Eamonn Keogh, CSIS alumni, has generously donated to the Computer Science major scholarship. Dr. Keogh graduated in 1995 and credits Dr. Rika Yoshii (CSIS) with encouraging him to pursue his Ph.D. at the University of California, Irvine. Dr. Keogh is now a Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at UCR and recently featured in their Fall 2012 magazine. Thank you for your generosity to your alum!
Congratulations to Dominica Ranieri, a first-generation college senior majoring in Biochemistry at CSUSM, who was named one of 23 California State University (CSU) students to receive the 2012-2013 William R. Hearst/CSU Trustees' Award for Outstanding Achievement! You can read more about her inspiring story at http://www.csusm.edu/news/topstories/articles/2012/09/tsHearst.html.
