NO GLASS CEILING
Selina Laws would someday like to have her own lab and teach at a university or hold a government research position. The self-described “lab rat” says studying in the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering to earn her PhD has been an intimidating challenge, but her mentors there have provided her with all the tools she needs to be successful and take her research to the highest level.
“I want to be able to help as many people as possible,” she says. “If I can create a material to be able to do that, then I can have a great impact, whether that’s for human lives or for the environment.”
