Collaboration Across Borders: Building Human Bridges That Persist

Professor Olivia Graeve

Human bridges are built by promoting compassionate connections that give hope to people. This presentation will describe one such effort at UC San Diego that brings together connected high-school and undergraduate students from San Diego County and Mexico, promoting the development of research among young students as well as cross-border friendships. The students are organized in pairs, one from each side of the border, and work together in research laboratories across the UC San Diego campus.

Instructor: Olivia Graeve is Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at UC San Diego. She also directs the CaliBaja Center for Resilient Materials and Systems and the IDEA Engineering Student Center. Her research focuses on the design and processing of new materials for extreme environments, including temperature, pressure, and radiation. She has received many awards as a Hispanic educator and in 2017 was named by Forbes Magazine one of the 100 Most Powerful Women of Mexico.
