Congratulations to Noelle Jacobsen who has been placed on the alternate selection list for the 2019 National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship.
Jacobsen is a 1st year biomedical engineering Ph.D. student in Dr. Daniel Ferris’ lab specializing in neural engineering. Jacobsen’s primary research focus is studying brain activity during locomotor adaptation using high-density electroencephalography (EEG). In the community, she has been involved with the Cade Museum, Food for Kids and the Ronald McDonald House. She is currently working with colleagues to launch Girls with Nerve at UF, a summer camp that introduces middle school girls to neuroscience and engineering. She is passionate about encouraging young women to explore STEM careers. Jacobsen believes in maintaining a healthy work-life balance – a tenet she lives out through her interests in art, piano, saxophone, meditation and intramural sports.
