While I enjoyed a week out of the lab, off from stressing about deadlines and papers, I am ready to get back at it. This week invigorated me to work harder at my research in order to be able to present my work to the next convention (MRS Fall, anyone?). Hearing from all these names who I’ve never met, but read papers of and bouncing ideas around with them allowed me to realize that science is all in this together.
I am ready to bring what I had learned about my materials and processes back home with me to the lab. MRS may be over for now, but the effects that this conference had will play a vital role in my research. -Ingrid
