Dr. LaVonda Brown
Electrical and Computer Engineering,
Louisiana State University.
I am currently an Assistant Professor at Louisiana State University in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. I thought I would be a comedian or a medical doctor when I was younger. I earned a Bachelors degree in Electronics Engineering from Norfolk State University and went on to bag a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology.
How was your experience with STEM classes and teachers in middle and high school?
I always enjoyed my math and applied science classes in grade school. There were a few teachers in middle school that recognized my strength and pushed me past the bar set for the class. That’s when I realized the breadth of my gift with numbers. I will forever be grateful for those teachers.
