Speakers:

Patrick Kelly
MBA MPH student
Patrick was CEO at Conscious Box, a $7.7MM online retail startup that sold natural and organic products. During this time, he developed a framework to prioritize and execute his most important tasks first. Subsequently, as a grad student doing two masters programs, he refined his framework to balance coursework, recruiting, and relationships.

Ana Lyons
PhD Candidate in Integrative Biology
Ana is a rising 4th year PhD Candidate in Integrative Biology—with a Designated Emphasis in Computational Biology—as well as an NSF GRFP fellow. Covering a range of topics, central to functioning as both a researcher and GSI, Ana will share methods that she uses to: organize her own “semester plans,” keep an electronic lab notebook, keep updated on literature in her field, organize reading material for a qualifying exam, recruit well-matched URAP students, manage URAP students’ schedules, and generate discussion section materials for GSI appointments.

Riya Young
Student in Online MPH program
Riya juggles life with several part-time jobs, her own business, several volunteer roles, and a family with kids in college and high school. Riya will share some of her favorite tools and techniques for not just managing data and working with colleagues, but in saving time and staying productive.
