I am capping my Fulbright Fellowship with a conference in Chile in late August. Fulbright student researchers from across the Western Hemisphere are coming together to reflect on the theme of “sustainable and inclusive development.” This is a far cry from my ‘comfort zone’ in sea turtle research, so I am looking forward to a stimulating conference. My conference paper is titled Feedbacks between science education and (sustainable) economic development: a perspective from Antigua, West Indies. I will discuss it and others during a panel session during the conference.
Stay tuned for a blog post when I get back to NC State this fall – I will wrap-up my Fulbright fellowship and reflect on the 8-month experience.
