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.
