“The GCSP has truly set me up for success in exploring fundamental physics phenomena in nanomaterials during graduate studies. My Grand Challenge research project enabled me to present at multiple research conferences and publish multiple articles. The GCSP pushed me to pursue interdisciplinary and community-focused projects, as well as to get entrepreneurship experience. These experiences helped me realize the obstacles of commercializing technology from the patent stage. I now have a greater appreciation for the breadth of knowledge necessary for interdisciplinary work (even within STEM). Finally, I am now more equipped to lead a team with a strong vision through my EWB experience associated with the GCSP.”
