As the first ever, cross-disciplinary research symposium at UC San Diego to focus exclusively on issues related to sustainability, the ISC Sustainability Research Symposium will serve to highlight the work of undergraduate researchers while also showcasing ways in which researchers at all levels can conduct research in a more sustainable manner. From poster presentations to Green Labs outreach, the symposium will be packed full of oppurtunities for students and researchers to learn more about how to get involved in the sustainability community on campus and about current research efforts seeking to address issues like climate change, pollution, environmental degradation and more. In addition free food and coffee, the event will also include a keynote address by Dr. Andrea Tao. Dr. Tao is an Associate Professor of Nanoengineering and the Principal Investigator of the UCSD Nanoscale Interfaces & Assembly Lab. Dr Tao conducts research into nanophotonics and bio-inspired nanonmaterials, and will be discussing her journey to become a PI and sustainability researcher at UCSD.
