Graduate school is a great place to gain scientific and research expertise – but that’s hardly the only thing you’ll need in your future as a Ph.D. Are you ready to lead a group? Manage your coworkers? Mentor budding scientists?

To address the many interpersonal issues that arise in a scientific workplace, graduate students from Chemistry, Physics, and Molecular & Cell Biology founded SLAM: Science Leadership and Management.

Meg Fasulo is a patent lawyer at Bartlit Beck Herman Palenchar & Scott, LLP. She joined Don Tilley’s group at the University of California, Berkeley investigating intermediates in various catalytic reactions such as hydrosilylation. After receiving her PhD in Chemistry in 2012, Meg studied at the University of Chicago Law School and received her JD with honors in 2015. She later served as a Judicial Law Clerk for a U.S Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in 2016 and a U.S District Court in Delaware in 2017.
