Historian Research Assistant

March - June 2021 • Hanover, NH

What I liked

Getting to work one-on-one with a professor was very valuable for me in terms of helping me to understand the research, organizational, and specialized skills that go into creating an academic publication.

What I wish was different

I wish that there had been more opportunities for in-person meetings, but, given the online nature of the work, meeting had to be kept online.

Advice

I would say that it is important to set deadlines and stick to them.

Mathematics Research Intern

June - August 2018 • Hanover, NH

What I liked

What I wish was different

Advice

Any kind of research experience is not always all fun and games. For many weeks out of the 10 I was there, I was under a lot of pressure. It was often that I needed to stop and realize where I was and take advantage of being in a new place. Make sure whatever internships or experiences you get to participate in, you take the time to appreciate what is in front of you, because you never know if you'll get to go back.
