Join us for a live recording of Sci-Tech’s new podcast! Our third “Meet the Experts” lineup will focus on the world of science. We’ve all done science experiments to test the world around us, but what does it mean to learn so much about a specific scientific topic that you complete a Ph.D. in it?

Join our experts as they share with us why they decided to pursue doctoral research and how their perspectives on science have changed over the years. They will also talk about the role that Judaism has played in choosing and journeying through their current profession. The best part? You’ll get to ask them questions too!

Rachel Shapiro (Ph.D. candidate) will discuss her time in graduate school and what it means to be a Ph.D. candidate and defend a dissertation. Rachel is currently a Ph.D. candidate in chemical and biomolecular engineering at Johns Hopkins University. She was the inaugural assistant director of URJ 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy-West and spent many summers at the URJ Kutz Camp and a summer as the program director at Sci-Tech East.
