Scientists as Ambassadors
International collaborations provide opportunities for students to broaden their horizons while also serving as ambassadors to the world. Our team enjoys extensive international collaborations which can provide opportunities for students to study abroad. Two graduate students who worked on this project were able to exploit these opportunities for such collaborations.
Jessica L. Terrrell worked in Trento Italy during her PhD studies. Her work enabled her to deepen her understanding of how bio-nano-micro fabrication technologies can be integrated. Since completing her PhD, Dr. Terrell has been working at the Army Research Laboratory.
Tanya Tschirhart, worked in Singapore during her PhD studies. There, she expanded her knowledge of synthetic biology, and after graduating, Dr. Tschirhart joined the Naval Research Laboratory where she is investigating novel microorganisms for synthetic biology.
