2014 Pardee Graduate Summer Fellows Program Concludes

From Top Left to Bottom Right: Laurie Wissler, Abhishek Sharma, Cantay Caliskan, Lilly Havstad, Xiaoman Huang, Sarah Hill, and Xiaojing Tang

The 2014 Graduate Summer Fellows say goodbye today after ten weeks of research, writing, and interdisciplinary discussion at the Pardee Center. The seven Boston University doctoral and master’s students – Cantay Caliskan, Lilly Havstad, Sarah Hill, Xiaoman Huang, Abhishek Sharma, Xiaojing Tang, and Laurie Wissler – stem from diverse research and personal backgrounds, and each contributed uniquely to the program.

During their 10 week stay at the Center, the Summer Fellows researched a wide variety of topics from clean energy investment and financing to changing food preferences in rising middle class societies. They also met with Pardee Faculty Fellows in a series of informal lunches, gave interactive presentations, and composed papers to be considered for publication by the Pardee Center. In a final farewell lunch on Thursday, July 31st, Center Director Anthony Janetos and Associate Director Cynthia Barakatt urged fellows to stay in touch and continue to use the Center as a resource for interdisciplinary research and networks.
