Cindy Rubio González, associate professor in the Department of Computer Science, has been welcomed into UC Davis’s newest class of Chancellor’s Fellows, a title given to early career academics doing exemplary work.

“These outstanding faculty members are some of our brightest and most promising scholars,” Chancellor Gary S. May said. “I know they will continue to impress and shine a light on the groundbreaking work happening here at UC Davis. I expect this recognition and support will help propel them to even greater heights.”

The Chancellor’s Fellows program was created in 2000, and this year’s class brings the total number of recipients to an even 200. Recipients carry the title for five years and are awarded $25,000 in unrestricted philanthropic support for research or other scholarly work.

“We’re all celebrating reaching 200 Chancellor’s Fellows,” said Shaun B. Keister, vice chancellor for Development and Alumni Relations. “Our dedicated donors have helped launch some of the most impactful research of the past two decades, supporting early-career experts across all disciplines. This is a true testament to how philanthropy is changing the world.”

Rubio researches software accuracy and performance to design and build tools that help software developers write reliable and efficient programs.

With projects like BugSwarm, an ever-growing dataset of reproducible real-world software failures and fixes, she is also passionate about the automated creation of large-scale datasets to evaluate software tools and facilitate the use of machine learning to solve software engineering tasks.

Rubio is the recipient of several notable awards, including the Department of Energy’s Office of Science Early Career Award, the National Science Foundation CAREER Award and the Facebook Testing and Verification Research Award.

“Professor Rubio González’s service to the university, especially in terms of scholarly community service, intramural service, and promoting diversity, has been exceptional,” wrote Professor Dipak Ghosal, the Prem Chand Jain Family Presidential Chair for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and chair of the Department of Computer Science.
