Two researchers from Kenya visited Berkeley Lab last month to participate in the State Department Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affair’s TechWomen, an international exchange that brings emerging women leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) from Africa, Central Asia and the Middle East together with their professional counterparts in the United States and gives them access to networks, resources and industry contacts. This year, TechWomen brought approximately 90 women representing 19 countries to the San Francisco Bay Area. BIDS fellow Daniela Ushizima, Staff Scientist in Berkeley Lab’s Computational Research Division (CRD), and Teresa Williams, Principal Scientific Engineering Associate at LBL's Molecular Foundry, co-hosted the two researchers.
