Growing Up In Science Discussion

06/14/2018 - 12:30pm to 1:50pm
Vaughan Hall Rm 300
Event Description: 

Have you ever wondered what your advisor or committee member struggled with as a graduate student? What they struggle with now? Growing up in science is a conversation series that is not about science, but about becoming and being a scientist.  On this day, Asst. Prof. Anne Pommier will discuss her path to becoming a scientist.  

At each event, one faculty member shares their life story, with a focus on struggles, failures, doubts, detours, and weaknesses. Common topics include dealing with expectations (your own and others), impostor syndrome, procrastination, the role of luck, rejection, and conflicts with advisors, but these topics are always embedded in the speaker's broader narrative.
