Engaged research

Kris Gutiérrez

I believe mentoring the next generation of scholars, particularly first generation faculty and students, is one of the most important responsibilities and commitments I have. I have had the privilege of mentoring and apprenticing both students (graduate, undergraduate, and postdocs) and faculty (particularly early and mid-career faculty) at my institutions and in professional arenas since I was an early career scholar myself. Presently, I am also a mentor for dissertation, postdoctoral, and mid-career fellows for the National Academy of Education & the Spencer Foundation.

Rachel Morello-Frosch

As Division Chair and Equity Liaison in ESPM, and DrPH Program Director in the School of Public Health, I have collaborated with faculty colleagues, staff and students to advance the diversity equity and inclusion mission of UC Berkeley, through development and implementation of DEI plans for my units and programs. I co-led efforts with colleagues to develop faculty cluster hire proposals, including one on climate change and environmental justice, and also worked to improve recruitment, retention and mentoring of faculty, post-docs and students from under-represented groups.

Maximilian Auffhammer

I am the recipient of the 2017 Cheit Teaching Award in the Haas School of Business, the 2009 Campus Distinguished Teaching Award the 2007 Cozzarelli Prize awarded by the National Academies of Sciences, and the 2007 Sarlo Distinguished Mentoring Award. I have advised 40+ doctoral students in my 17 years at UC Berkeley. I love this place. I also love food, soccer and spending tons of time with my son Noah and awesome spouse Lori.

Lisa García Bedolla

As a core advisory I bring my twenty years of experience navigating the UC system as a woman of color. I have expertise in understanding complex institutions and ensuring that your needs are met within those institutions. When mentoring junior faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates I have focused on helping them to find their voice, their joy, and the career path that best meets their professional and personal needs.

Linda Burton

I have over 35 years of experience in mentoring students and faculty. I directed NIMH’s Family Research Consortium Postdoctoral Training Program and African American Mental Health Research Training Program for over a decade. I also received the Dean’s Excellence Award in Mentoring from Duke University.

Jill Duerr Berrick

I love talking with faculty and students about how to maximize joy in their work, how to think strategically about the opportunities available within the academy, and how to position their work to make a difference in the world.

Hilary Hoynes

I am passionate about mentoring junior faculty and graduate students particularly those in underrepresented groups. Issues I bring to that discussion include: how to say no, how to manage relationships, networking, strategizing to get the career outcomes that you want.

Allan deSouza

I bring extensive experience of mentoring underrepresented students and junior faculty, from the point of hire through their academic careers. My emphasis is on intersections between race, gender, sexuality, disability and class, and how these might enable possibilities for research and self-development, as well as how they are used as constraints by institutions.

Grace Lavery

I am committed to fostering institutional spaces for queer and trans faculty, staff, and students, and work with faculty pursuing similar goals. Additionally, I am available to advise faculty pursuing public platforms on how to balance intramural and extramural demands and workflow.
