Summer Intern in Division of Marketing and Communications

May 2023 - August 2023 Pittsburgh, PA
“I loved the people in the department. They all acted as the most supportive professor, giving me tasks that genuinely built my range and gave me to proper tools/skills to complete them! ”

Undergraduate Researcher

May 2022 - July 2022 Pittsburgh, PA
“I liked that a lot of my research project was independent, but I still had a very supportive PI. The program was a perfect match for my interests because it focused broadly on organismal biology, and I had the chance to collect my model organisms (salamanders) directly from a nearby forest (with PI license). This opportunity helped grow my confidence in the lab and gave me the chance to hone my public speaking skills in a casual, no-judgment environment. The stipend was greatly appreciated and reflected the amount of work I completed. Housing and dining were covered by the school. Ultimately, this is the best summer program I could have found because it was directed towards increasing opportunities for underrepresented minorities and first-generation students, and I'm so thankful for the experience and connections I've made.”
