Congratulations to fourth year PhD student Jenny Lee who has been selected as one of the 2021 KSEA-KUSCO Graduate Scholarship recipients, provided by Korean-American Scientist and Engineering Association (KSEA) to graduate students of Korean heritage at an accredited institution in the US. The vision of the KSEA is to promote the application of science and technology for the general welfare of society, foster international cooperation especially between the U.S. and Korea, and help Korean-American Scientists and Engineers develop their full career potential. Jenny will be attending the US-KOREA Conference on Science, Technology, and Entrepreneurship (UKC) 2021 for the scholarship award ceremony and presentation. The theme of UKC 2021 is “Pursuing Global Health and Sustainability” where it aims to accelerate the momentum on sustainability and to address health challenges such as current and the next pandemic. This conference can play a major role in reducing the technology gap with policy makers, and build the framework to tackle global challenges through science diplomacy.
In separate news, Jenny has also been working as a Student Ambassador for the Harvard Center for Climate, Health and the Global Environment (Harvard Chan C-CHANGE) for 2020-2021. She is looking forward to being exposed to climate change related research projects at HSPH and at C-CHANGE and to learn more about potential impacts of climate change problems.
