Krina Patel

Graduate Student Instructor (Health + Innovation)

Krina is a doctorate student in the Science and Math Education (SESAME) program at UC Berkeley. As a Kenyan-born Indian, she has always been intrigued by the diverse educational systems across different countries. Her passion for engineering design was sparked during her senior year of high school when a baking mishap inspired her to pursue an engineering degree at Penn State. As an undergraduate, she was involved in design thinking, engineering education, and organizational psychology research at the Pennsylvania State University (Do-iT Lab). Krina’s current research aims to explore how to make undergraduate engineering design education more inclusive, culturally relevant, and interpersonal. She is particularly interested in exploring culturally responsive learning and critical conscious design in engineering- What (and how) do students learn in design?
