How will your GSAS experience benefit your future research?:
This GSAS session has taught me an important lesson regarding how critical it is to come up with a good research project in an emerging research field. This is especially relevant at this early stage of my research career. As follows, I look forward to the opportunity of being part of future GSAS events.
How has GSAS helped you develop a global perspective?:
It was wonderful being on a team made up from people with such a diverse ethnic and cultural heritage. Having us all come together and work as a team towards a common goal and achieve success in that endeavor was a unique experience that brought us together in solidarity.
