Ms. Jeanie Malone is a student in the Faculty of Applied Science at UBC’s Vancouver campus. A recent graduate from UBC’s Electrical Engineering program, Jeanie will be beginning a M.ASc in biomedical engineering in the fall of 2017, focusing on biophotonics research with applications in cancer detection.
During her undergraduate degree, Jeanie spent three years as an executive in the Engineering Undergraduate Society (EUS), culminating in leading the organization as President in her final year. The EUS is one of the oldest faculty student associations at UBC, dating back to 1919, and provides social, professional, and advocacy services to 4,500 students.
Jeanie is also a strong advocate for STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) outreach, and is particularly engaged in outreach to groups traditionally underrepresented in STEM fields such as girls and Aboriginal youth. Jeanie has led Geering Up, the Faculty of Applied Science’s engineering outreach program for kids, and now chairs Geering Up‘s Board of Advisors.
