Women in Engineering (WiE) is a student group founded in November 2010 at the University of Rochester by an Optics graduate student, Cristina Canavesi, under the mentoring of Professor Jannick Rolland to provide networking and mentoring opportunities for women in engineering. We aim to hold regular brown bag lunches with guests from both academia and industry, along with a range of other events in support of our member community. Our meetings and events are open to all, men and women, and all faculty and students (graduate and undergraduate) are welcome.

President // Di Xu
Di is a graduate student in Optics researching new methods for the metrology of freeform optical surfaces, so that optical designers everywhere can confidently design with unconventional geometries to achieve systems of higher performance and/or lower volume footprint. Di graduated from Huazhong University of Science and Technology with a B.E. in Opto-electronic Information Engineering, and a M.S. in Optics with Certified Specialty in Optical Design, Fabrication and Testing from the Institute of Optics at the University of Rochester.
