ME's Caroline Genzale Chosen for Governor's Teaching Fellows Program
Woodruff School assistant professor Caroline Genzale has been chosen as a Fellow for the Governor's Teaching Fellows Program. She will attend the Summer 2016 Symposium held at the University of Georgia in May.
The Governor's Teaching Fellows Program was established by Zell Miller, governor of Georgia, 1991-1999, to provide Georgia's higher education faculty with expanded opportunities for developing important teaching skills. Governor Miller envisioned that this program would address faculty members' pressing need to use emerging technologies and instructional tools that are becoming increasingly important for learning in today's society. The program is offered through the Institute of Higher Education at the University of Georgia.
To improve the quality of instruction in Georgia's colleges and universities, the Governor's Teaching Fellows Program assumes the complex challenge of moving college faculty members to the leading edge of instructional practice. To date, more than 75 different disciplines, professions, and teaching areas have been represented by the Governor's Teaching Fellows, and they have come from more than 45 institutions statewide.
Genzale began at Georgia Tech in December 2010. Prior to arriving at Georgia Tech, she was a post-doctoral researcher at Sandia National Laboratories’ Combustion Research Facility in Livermore, California. There, she applied laser-based measurements in combusting fuel sprays to study the mechanisms of pollutant formation and combustion inefficiencies that occur in direct-injection diesel and gasoline engines. During her graduate work at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, she worked on the development of computer models and optimization tools to explore new high-efficiency low-pollution engine designs.
