Makeda gave a talk on her career journey during Columbia Chemistry's 'PhD for a Day!' event.
Graduate students, postdocs, undergraduates, and faculty at Columbia University work with local high school teachers to dedicate a day to science for participating local middle school and high school students. The students were exposed to scientific research and career paths and even conducted their own experiments! Diverse scientists with non-traditional backgrounds were recruited in order to challenge the students’ perception of a scientist.
