PROFESSOR: Jeff Cain
RATE MY PROFESSOR: "I usually dont go on Ratemyprofessors to write anything. However, Jeff is such a wonderful instructor that I feel like I need to recommend him to everyone. He is very helpful and one of the nicest professors I've met at USC."

His work focuses on how research-based material production can interpret, intervene and innovate natural and social environments. His projects have been shown at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, UCR ARTSblock and Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions.
