Class Year



“How would you like to attend one of the most prestigious scientific conferences in the world?” my advisor Dr. DebBurman asked me last spring. I was intrigued. He added, “By the way, you’ll be going alone. And I don’t mean without any other members from lab; I won’t be going either. And it’s in New Hampshire. And you’ll probably be the only undergraduate in attendance.” I was intimidated. He finished, “If you would like to go, we should start thinking about a poster soon. The conference is during the summer.”
