An event has been held in College bringing together Trinity’s Fellows and graduate students in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects.
This useful and inspiring event was the idea of graduate student Pascale Gourdeau. Over lunch, the Fellows talked about their paths to Oxford and what their current work involves, and the students asked questions about following careers in sciences.
The Fellows present were Professor Dame Frances Ashcroft (Physiology), Professor Marta Kwiatkowska (Computing Systems), Professor Janet Pierrehumbert (Language Modelling), Dr Carla Perez Martinez (Junior Research Fellow in Chemistry), Dr Melanie Rupflin (Tutor in Pure Mathematics), and Professor Charlotte Williams (Tutor in Chemistry). The students attending – amongst whom were undergraduates in their fourth year – appreciated that so many of Trinity’s STEM Fellows were able to find time to join them, while the Fellows learned from each other and from the students.
