Alumni Spotlight: Meera Sampath

Meera was drawn to U-M even while completing her master’s degree in Control Systems in India. She was studying the research of Professor Semyon Meerkov, a renowned U-M faculty member, for her masters’ thesis; she found his work and the whole domain of controls fascinating, and she wanted to continue this line of study for her doctoral research. She was highly encouraged by her professor in India who told her that if she wanted to learn control systems, U-M was a great place to go.

Alumni Spotlight: Lisa Davis

Lisa Davis fell into a job she loves through a summer internship after her Master’s degree at U-M. “I applied to an internship pool and they placed me with this office.  I had no idea what I was getting into and didn’t know anything about working for the government.  It really just sounded like a good way to spend the summer,” she says.  Little did Lisa know that she would evolve that summer opportunity into a meaningful career.  Since 2007, Lisa has served as an Operations Research Analyst for the Department of Defense in the Office of the Secretary of Defense.
