Diversity and Inclusion: UCI is a world-class research institution with a diverse community. Excellent science requires creative thinking from many perspectives, and the UCI Neuromechanics Lab is committed to making science open to everyone. We recognize that science cannot be separated from societal issues, including racism and other forms of discrimination. We acknowledge the deep history of systemic racism in our society and anti-black racism in particular. We also acknowledge the historic exclusion of women from academia, and that structural barriers continue to perpetuate the underrepresentation of women and gender minorities in STEM. We welcome our international lab members and insist that xenophobia has no place in our lab. We are committed to educating ourselves, accepting feedback, and working to change our own actions and institutional policies to dismantle racism and discrimination. We welcome individuals from all backgrounds and expect all lab members to share our commitment to an equitable, diverse, and inclusive environment where everyone feels welcome, heard, and respected.
