Six selected as Mavis Future Faculty Fellows


The group of 71 new Mavis Future Faculty Fellows for the upcoming academic year includes six from MechSE.

Graduate students Partha Das, Arielle Gamboa, Benjamin Jasperson, Gautham Krishnan, Vinit Kumar, and Guillermo Colin Navarro will be supported during AY 2023-24 by The Grainger College of Engineering program to help prepare them for their future transition into academia. The three main components of the MF3 Program are research, teaching, and mentoring. Fellows will have an opportunity to develop and enhance their skills in these core areas through various professional development activities and workshops, significant teaching experience, and mentorship of a less experienced student.

The Mavis Future Faculty Fellows (MF3) Program in The Grainger College of Engineering was developed to facilitate the training of the next generation of great engineering faculty. Workshop and seminar themes include describing life as a faculty member, writing cover letters and CVs, preparing for campus interviews, and defining and achieving success as a faculty member.
