Glickman of Culver City Awarded Summer Research Grant in India
April 18, 2019
Wesleyan University student and Culver City native Claire Glickman will conduct laboratory research in India this summer as a recipient of the U.S. Department of Education's Undergraduate International Studies and Foreign Language Program (UISFL) grant.
Glickman will work at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) in Mumbai. She will be working in the laboratory of Sudipta Maiti, professor in the Department of Chemical Sciences.
Glickman previously attended Culver City High School.
"In my mind, what is particularly exciting about these summer research opportunities is that they are doing two things at once," said Stephen Angle, director of the Fries Center for Global Studies. "They're further developing our ties with India, which connects to other South Asian initiatives, and expanding international opportunities for science students, which connects to other efforts we're making to emphasize the global reach-as well as local complexities-of the sciences."
