BH-BL alum Elizabeth Besozzi was the keynote speaker at the school’s Research Symposium on Wednesday, May 22. Check out what she had to say about BH-BL’s Science Research Program.
“Two days ago, I got to present some of my PhD research as the keynote speaker for the Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Science Research Program. As an alum of the program, it was surreal to revisit the start of my research journey almost ten years ago, and to see the next crop of talented and capable young scientists beginning that same journey. I was also thrilled that, even after 10 years, my very first research advisors, Dr. Bernard Possidente of Skidmore College and Dr. Douglas Burns of the U.S. Geological Survey, both attended my talk. This is the kind of mentorship that produces inquisitive students and excellent scientists. Thanks to Regina Kilgallen Reals for running and maintaining such an outstanding program, and for the gracious invitation to speak at this year’s symposium!”
