Grad Slam Competition: ME Graduate Students Excel

March 12, 2021

3 out of 10 graduate students from UC Merced campus made it to the next round for the 2021 Grad Slam Competition! This is an extremely high percentage since this competition is open to all the departments and groups on campus. The three ME students are:


  • Karen Mohammadtabar
  • Farhana Sharmin
  • Azar Vellore. 


Grad Slam is a UC systemwide competition that provides graduate students with a forum to explain the methods, results, and significance of their research via a short presentation to a non-specialty audience and panel of judges. The participants will be challenged to practice and perfect their answers to the inevitable question, “What is your research about?”.
