Elena Robakiewicz is combining her interests in geology and history as the recipient of a Fulbright research scholarship to Germany. The May 2016 graduate will spend an academic year in Tübingen, Germany, working with researchers who are studying ancient lake data to better understand early human migration patterns.
Robakiewicz says she applied for the Fulbright because it was an ideal opportunity to advance her science career while spending time abroad. “My professors helped push me to be a better student and to take risks such as studying abroad, applying for a Fulbright, and going for my PhD.”
