Overview

The Session was held July 28 - August 5, 2008 in parallel with a Symposium on Photovoltaics and Thin Film Solar Materials at the IUMRS International Conference on Electronic Materials (IUMRS-ICEM) . The Session program was designed to spark innovation in the promising area of organic solar cell development and prepare young researchers from diverse cultures and disciplines to lead future global initiatives. Participants attended a series of lectures, took part in collaborative research planning, received mentoring from senior experts, and visited local research facilities near Sydney.

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.
