Executive Cabinet

Ajay Singh, Chapter President

Hey! I am currently a third year Mathematics-Computer Science major ending my second full year in ESW. I joined ESW because they were one of the few organizations on campus that actually made a difference in the world through their student run projects. Now, as president, I want to continue our growth not only within our chapter, but also to other organizations on and off campus either through projects, workshops, or large-scale events. I know that with the amazing team I have we will be able to create a welcoming, purposeful atmosphere within the club for the next year!

Jason Mayeda, Vice President of Project Management

Hey! I’m Jason, a fourth year Mechanical Engineering major. I joined ESW because I wanted to work with a group of passionate, like-minded engineers towards the common goal of environmental and social sustainability. My main interests are in renewable energy technology. I look forward to working with this year’s Board of Directors to facilitate project growth, hold fun technical workshops, plan inter-project events, and growing ESW as a whole!

Cindy Meng, Vice President of Public Relations

Hello! I’m a rising senior studying Chemical Engineering. I joined ESW because I’m interested in the technical aspect of sustainability. Through further involvement, I realized sustainability is an interdisciplinary subject that requires expertise from all fields. I hope to provide ESW members with outreach and networking opportunities that help them become well-rounded members of the sustainability community.

In my position, I hope to help ESW members connect with each other and form a supportive community. I’m looking forward to getting to know all of our members through our events and making this upcoming term the best that it can be.

Dave Lightfoot, Vice President of Finance

Hi! My name is Dave and I am currently a second-year double majoring in Human Biology and Economics. Though my majors do not directly relate to engineering or sustainability, I joined ESW because I am passionate about sustainability and the environment. As Vice President of Finance, I want to continue the expansion of ESW’s member base, and I know that the ideal way to accommodate this expansion is to continue to increase our financial totals through innovative fundraising efforts and strategic partnerships with environmentally conscious companies/businesses.

Victoria Thai, Vice-President of Information Management 

Hello! My name is Victoria and I am a first-year Environmental Engineering major! My passion and love for sustainability and the environment led me to join ESW my first year at UCSD. I hoped to be a part of a group of individuals who wanted to join the world for the better, and that’s exactly what ESW is. I am currently a part of CommUnity, where we have a mentor-mentee program for high school students in underprivileged communities to show them the importance of sustainability and higher education.
