|Global Research Planning|
GSAS Scholars are assigned to multidisciplinary Global Research Teams and challenged to develop a detailed collaborative research plan related to the Session theme.
GSAS Teams are well-balanced with respect to research capabilities, discipline, gender,and national origin. Team formation is based on complementary expertise and research interests. In keeping with the GSAS mission of advancing major innovation in critical areas, GSAS organizers create novel teams of researchers who might not otherwise work together. This fresh approach to global team building produces exciting new projects and provides valuable collaboration experience for GSAS Scholars.

How will your GSAS experience benefit your future research?:
It became evident how much of the scientific process is really about thinking. Taking someone else's work, which is new to me, and then combining that with what I know of my own work, which I know very well, and trying to balance that disparity in knowledge to come out with a collaborative effort. This was a difficult exercise, but I believe it was very beneficial, especially because it forced me to think of my project in a new way.
