The Center for Design and Material Culture is pleased to host its first Chipstone-CDMC Undergraduate Research Fellowship Symposium. This fellowship program offers students an opportunity to conduct research in one of the three pillars of the CDMC: design thinking, material culture, and textiles. The 2020 fellowship cohort includes three fellows each studying in one of those three pillars. Join us as the three fellows share their work and research.

Her work focuses on design thinking education and is advised by Michelle Kwasny, Academic Director for the Master’s in Design + Innovation and Design and Research Strategist in the Chancellor’s Office.
