Research expertise, contributions to large discoveries and strong passion for their subject matter are just a few pieces of what postdoctoral scholars bring to Stony Brook University.
The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs has selected seven of those scholars to present their research at the annual SBU Postdoc Spotlight event happening on November 16, from 4 pm to 5 pm in the Wang Center.
Over the course of the fall semester, the selected scholars have been actively preparing for their presentations and building out engaging content. The spirit of the event is for postdocs to showcase their work in a way that is accessible to specialists and non specialists alike. They work closely with science communication experts to learn methods developed by the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science to ensure those who are not familiar with the subject matter will be intrigued by the research presented. The presentations will span across a variety of topics from combating climate change to discoveries in medicine to understanding anti-matter in the universe and more.
Postdoc Scholars Selected
- Katherine Gallagher, IACS and SoMAS
- Gabriel Matos, Microbiology and Immunology
- Arshad Mehmood, IACS and Chemistry
- Atul Pradhan, Medicine
- Ciro Riccio, Physics and Astronomy
- Mitu Sharma, Chemistry
- Ankita Singh, Microbiology and Immunology
The scholars who were selected for this unique professional development opportunity will be judged by a panel of their peers based on their ability to engage the audience and properly communicate the importance of their work. The top three talks will be awarded prizes generously sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research.
Attending this event is a great opportunity to support the meaningful work of Stony Brook postdocs as they prepare to become innovators and leaders in their space, while learning something new and exciting.
This event is free and open to the public. Contact the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs for any questions.
