UNLV First-Gen Doctoral Student Meena Ejjada Attends Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting
To say Meena Ejjada had a productive summer would be an understatement. When the civil and environmental engineering Ph.D. student traveled to Germany in June for the 71st Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, she ticked off those accomplishments in one swoop.
“I had some starstruck moments. I was getting to meet my inspiration” said Ejjada, referring to Nobel laureate Venki Ramakrishnan. “ I’ve always looked up to him.”
Ejjada is the third doctoral student to represent UNLV at the prestigious meeting, which gathers scientists from different generations, disciplines, and cultures for the exchange of ideas. The first was Ejjada’s UNLV mentor — Erica Marti, an assistant professor in Civil and Environmental Engineering and Construction, who attended the meeting in 2015 as a student.
