Spring of 2020 held great promise for MATTER Lab outreach, with multiple presentations scheduled, including a session where I was to hold a discussion with 6-10 members of Congress about technology and mental health, but everything got cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Below are three events I was able to participate in:
March 27, 2020 (1:45-3pm)
The 2020 Tri-Institutional Career Symposium is a day-long event that provides graduate students and postdocs from Memorial Sloan Kettering, Rockefeller University, and Weill Cornell Medicine with information on the range of career opportunities available to postdocs, PhDs and Master’s students in the biomedical sciences, along with a network of professionals to help prepare for these choices. Invitations have also been extended to alumni from these institutions and to a few other NYC-area institutions like Columbia and NYU.
February 27, 2020 (6-8pm)
William C. Warren Hall, Room 416
1125 Amsterdam Avenue, NY, NY, USA
I gave live MATTER Lab demonstrations, talked about my background, and fielded questions from students and postdocs at an event hosted by the Health Tech Assembly, a cross-Columbia initiative that seeks to facilitate collaboration between engineering, medical, and business school students. The event is also an opportunity for students/alumni to pitch their projects/ideas so they can receive feedback and recruit new teammates or even pitch themselves as a future collaborator.
January 22, 2020 (6-7:30pm)
1300 York Avenue, Room A-126, NY, NY
Given that this was an alumni event, I spoke about a bit about my time at Cornell Medical in the context of my academic and professional career, as well as my current work in the MATTER Lab. Students asked questions related to their interests and about future careers.
