How has GSAS helped you develop a global perspective?:
The GSAS program by demonstration has shown that global cooperation is an effective means to foster new ideas and implement them globally. Being placed in a team with individuals of different scientific backgrounds in research was truly a great experience. The clarity and development of our concept in an intense environment helped displayed each member’s expertise and allowed us to see how different research can be and is conducted globally. I have gained a global perspective by interacting with the members of my team and through the mentors provided in this session.
