UCLA professor, UC Berkeley alums win prestigious MacArthur ‘genius’ grants
Four researchers and scholars with UC connections have been awarded MacArthur fellowships, or “genius grants,” the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation announced on Sept. 28.
UCLA Professor Safiya Noble directs an interdisciplinary research center focused on the intersection of human rights, social justice, democracy and technology. She joins two UC Berkeley alums, Taylor Perron and Joshua Miele, and Daniel Alarcón, a former visiting scholar and fellow at UC Berkeley, in receiving the prestigious fellowships.
UCOP staff may remember Safiya Noble from her recent presentation at the UC Council of Chief Diversity Officers’ Distinguished Scholars series.genius grants, MacArthur fellowships, Safiya Noble
