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. 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. For more info on the series origination, see www.growingupinscience.com.
September's Growing up in Science will feature Dr. Kim Cobb, Professor and Director of the Global Change Program at Georgia Tech. **Please note that due to her commitment to reducing her carbon footprint, Dr. Cobb will be presenting remotely.**
