Max Lee, MA

Undergraduate Academic Advisor
Study Abroad Advisor

Hello! I joined the College of Natural Sciences team in June 2018, but I’ve been an advisor at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Study Abroad Center since 1997. I received a double BA in Japanese and French, and an MA in French language and literature, both from UHM. While a student I studied in Germany, Argentina and France. Besides English, I speak Japanese, French, Spanish and German, at various levels. The skills I learned while navigating different languages and cultures still serve me professionally and personally.

I encourage all students to consider participating in a study abroad program while at UHM. It doesn’t have to delay graduation and can be a truly fulfilling experience.

Reynold Kajiwara

Undergraduate Academic Advisor

My name is Reynold and I’m an Academic Advisor for the College of Natural Sciences! I was born and raised here on O’ahu and grew up in Waipahu.

I received my Bachelor’s of Arts in Japanese and Second Language Studies here at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. While in college, I participated in the UHM Study Abroad Center’s Year in Japan Program, was the President of the UHM Japanese Culture Club, and a Student Interchanger.

After graduating, I spent a year and a half working as an Academic Program Assistant and ESL instructor for a local English Language School which housed many students from across the world. Before joining the NatSci Advising team, I worked as an Express Academic Advisor for the UHM Advising Center for the Colleges of Arts & Humanities and Languages, Linguistics, and Literature.

Solimar Carrasquillo Ho

Undergraduate Academic Advisor

Hi everyone! My name is Solimar which means sun and ocean in Spanish! I spent my younger childhood years living on Oʻahu, before my family moved to Fayetteville, North Carolina. I moved back to Oahu to attend the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa to pursue a Bachelor’s of Science in Marine Biology. I’ve had the luxury of working with NOAA’s Marine Turtle Biology and Assessment Program with primarily green sea turtles where I helped injured and sick sea turtles. There I conducted my undergraduate research on dietary preferences in green turtles focusing on algal species.

I am excited to work with you and guide you through your journey at the university!

ACADEMIC ADVISOR

Major Advisor

Kenny Quibilan, BA

Aloha mai kākou!

My name is Kenny Quibilan and I advise Freshmen and Sophomores within the Information & Computer Science program here at the University of Hawaii at Mānoa (UHM). People often describe me as a very down to earth and approachable individual. I enjoy the outdoors and being in the sun. My favorite hobbies are going to the beach and hiking with friends.

Currently, I am a graduate student in the Educational Administration program here at UHM. My bachelor’s degree, which I also earned at UHM, is in Economics. That being said, computer science plays a vital role in modern day economic research. Knowledge of computer science and software engineering allow researchers to generate models that are used in forecasting economic trends.

As your Peer Advisor, I hope to help you map out your future endeavors and better your college experience. Feel free to contact me for advising. Hope to see you soon!

E mālama pono.
