SLS Aaron FieldsThis week’s meeting of the Science in Action Lecture Series once again filled room 7-106 to capacity. Aaron Fields, PhD, is a native of the Bay Area who received his BS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Denver, and completed grad school at UC Berkeley. He is currently a postdoctoral fellow at UC San Francisco in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery.

Dr. Fields’ lecture title was “From Bridges to Bones: Large-Scale Computer Simulation in Biomechanics.” The presentation led to a great exchange of questions between students and speaker. Along with his topic, Dr. Fields provided valuable advice to all Skyline College students in attendance, specifically touching on careers in engineering, graduate school, and job outlook in the field.SLS Aaron Fields group
