IGERT alumni dissertations are multidisciplinary

A clear multidisciplinary emphasis is being incorporated into the dissertation research of CIIP Alumni. Trainees Abigail Anthony, Karen Sullivan, and Stephaine Koch are in the final stages of completing their Ph.D. research and the fingerprints of the CIIP program are clear in their work. Anthony’s research developed directly from her IGERT Internship. Sullivan and Koch have distinct elements in their research that address the human dimension of the natural science problems they study. We take this as the ultimate benchmark of success.
