This event is in the past.
Come join the next event in our FREE Yale alumni speaker series with YSEA: a conversation with fellow Yale alum Prof. Ranajeet Ghose!
The event is free, but YOU MUST RSVP to ensure your name is on the guest list.
Prof. Ghose will tell us about:
1. His path as a scientist: How he came into science, why he became interested in studying the structure and dynamics of biomolecules, and why anyone should care about this (seemingly) esoteric area of research
2. How science funding works: The nature of the scientific enterprise and the quest for funding, federal or private, to carry out our work - including his time working for the federal government as a Program Director at the National Science Foundation, making decisions on what science to fund (hence the title of the talk!)
Prof. Ghose's bio:
PhD (1998) in Chemical Physics from Yale. Premier Assistant at the Université de Lausanne from 1998-1999 working on the theoretical foundations of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).
