Teresa Tippens graduated from Oberlin College with a major in Sound Design and a minor in Computer Science. Teresaspent a year in Japan on a Rotary Club scholarship, and returned there with an Oberlin Shansi In-Asia grant for her 2013 winter term to investigate sound and ethnomusicology in Japan. Through these experiences, Teresa had her sights on an Oberlin Shansi Fellowship as her next step after college. As her interests expanded into the fields of food – she was a proud OSCA “tasty things maker” and baking Exco teacher – along with computer programming, and a 2014 winter term trip with Professor Jennifer Fraser exploring Music, Islam and Disaster in Indonesia, she found the Shansi Fellowship opportunity to be an excellent fit. Teresa looks forward to delving into Jogja’s vibrant foods and flavors, sharing her own baking skills, and working with the vibrant academic community in UGM and CRCS.
