CAMPOS scholar Cindy Rubio González named Chancellor's Fellow

Congratulations to Cindy Rubio González, 2014-15 CAMPOS scholar and associate professor in the department of computer science in the UC Davis College of Engineering, for being one of only nine faculty to be named a 2024 Chancellor's Fellows  a title given to early career academics doing exemplary work.

“These outstanding faculty members are some of our brightest and most promising scholars,” Chancellor Gary S. May said. “I know they will continue to impress and shine a light on the groundbreaking work happening here at UC Davis. I expect this recognition and support will help propel them to even greater heights.”

More on Cindy Rubio González

González researches software accuracy and performance to design and build tools that help software developers write reliable and efficient programs. With projects like BugSwarm, an ever-growing dataset of reproducible real-world software failures and fixes, she is also passionate about the automated creation of large-scale datasets to evaluate software tools and facilitate the use of machine learning to solve software engineering tasks. Rubio is the recipient of several notable awards, including the Department of Energy’s Office of Science Early Career Award, the National Science Foundation CAREER Award and the Facebook Testing and Verification Research Award.

"In my honest view, the success of our field will be determined by the likes of Cindy who can excel in multiple pursuits in software engineering, attract multiple honors and research grants, and have a profound impact by being a role model for the underrepresented population," University of Utah Professor Ganesh Gopalakrishnan wrote in a letter of support.

The Chancellor’s Fellows program was created in 2000, and this year’s class brings the total number of recipients to an even 200. Recipients carry the title for five years and are awarded $25,000 in unrestricted philanthropic support for research or other scholarly work.
