On Thursday, April 8th, WIC+ invited Professor Danna Freedman for a virtual coffee hour via zoom. Professor Freedman is currently a professor at Northwestern and will be joining the MIT chemistry department this summer in the inorganic division. During the coffee hour, Professor Freedman shared her early experiences in science and research, which influenced her to become a professor, her experiences as a professor at Northwestern, and why she’s excited to return to the MIT community. WIC+ would to thank Professor Freedman for taking the time to share her perspective within academia and give advice for future scientists. We look forward to seeing her and her group members in-person (hopefully) this upcoming fall!
