Rausser College’s Fall Breakthroughs Magazine Features ERG Professor Isha Ray and PhD Student Valeri Vasquez
In the latest fall 2020 issue of Breakthroughs magazine, ERG professor Isha Ray was interviewed on her work in social equity and inclusive activism, and ERG PhD student Valeri Vasquez was featured on her project of using computational models to research how genetic technologies might work as public health interventions. “Equity and inclusion have always motivated me, in both research and teaching, and I’ve served as an equity adviser in my department for many years,” Ray states in her interview. “My field research has always focused on social justice, particularly in communities that are neglected and marginalized and with people struggling to be included as full citizens. You would think that, in this century, clean, affordable drinking water wouldn’t be such a huge ask, but apparently it is.” Read Isha Ray’s full interview here, Valeri Vasquez’s work here, and the full Breakthroughs issue here.
