Marisol Cira

Marisol Cira has been awarded a 2022 LATinE: Latinx Trailblazers in Engineering fellowship. LATinE is an initiative intended to increase the number and success of Latinx/Hispanic engineering faculty in the US, who in turn, will blaze new trails with new discoveries, innovations and social impact and serve as role models for the next generation of engineers.

The goal of the LATinE program at Purdue Engineering is to prepare future trailblazing faculty in engineering with a focus on preparing outstanding scholars who are also committed to increasing the success of Latinx engineers. Trailblazers in Engineering Fellows are selected not only for their outstanding scholarly achievements but also for their potential impact in expanding representation and diversity in engineering. Fellows attend a 3-day workshop to network with leading faculty in engineering, thought leaders, program managers at key federal funding agencies, Purdue Engineering heads, and learn from each other and past fellows.
