Description

Interdisciplinary research draws on the strengths of researchers in different academic areas; however, it also presents unique challenges. In this session, Hyun Kwon (engineering), Padma Uppala (public health) and Rodney Summerscales (computer science) will share how they collaborate effectively. They will provide insights for researchers who wish to begin interdisciplinary research as well as for those who want to improve their current interdisciplinary efforts.
