Sustainable Research Pathways (SRP) 2018
Research staff from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) took part in the Sustainable Research Pathways Program during an interactive workshop in early December. Selected faculty from universities and colleges around the United States travel to the Laboratory for the day-long workshop intended to facilitate collaborations between faculty and Laboratory staff. Faculty then have the opportunity to bring students to the Lab for a summer research project. These collaborations have been successful in terms of published papers, conference proceedings acceptances, and sustained partnerships. Furthermore, in addition to furthering the careers of the faculty, the students are able to experience a Laboratory working environment and accelerate their career plans.
What’s more, is that participants in the program are primarily from underrepresented or underprivileged backgrounds.
LBNL researcher Dan Martin of the Applied Numerical Algorithms Group gives a presentation on the current research projects in his group.
Tanzima Islam presents her research during a poster blitz session where faculty members give a 60-second overview of their project.
Here at SHI, we are looking forward to our continued work with faculty and lab researchers as we expand this program together.
