Research Ready Workshop
Are you wondering how to get involved in undergraduate research or creative work with a faculty mentor? We understand that this process can be confusing so we’re here to help! Join us for an evening workshop where we’ll discuss the benefits of working with a professor at OSU, how to identify and contact the professor you want to work with, and how to identify specific programs that provide funding to engage in research or creative work. You’ll also have an opportunity to hear directly from a panel of undergraduate researchers about what their experiences were like. RSPV at this link and we will follow up with location information: http://oregonstate.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5d1f1Y3rS3APzo1.

MIME Distinguished Speaker: Nathan Johnson, Ph.D., " From Energy Access to Grid Resiliency: A Story of Anthropology, Engineering, and Business"
Innovation is a process that encompasses and eclipses engineering practice to more comprehensively include skillsets from anthropology, economics, and business. It is challenging, however, within our academic career paths to identify opportunities to apply that process in earnest. This talk will demonstrate opportunities for innovation with global impact by beginning with methods that capture and interpret user insights before diving deeper into four synergistic project areas that each connect user insights with technical research to the delivered product. Nathan Johnson is an Assistant Professor at Arizona State University and the Director of the Laboratory for Energy And Power Solutions (LEAPS).
