Panel discussion on Interdisciplinary Research and Collaboration
October 29, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
The IDRE Early Career Researchers group is excited to restart its monthly meetings. This first meeting will introduce five IDRE scholars selected from a large pool of applicants, followed by a panel discussion on interdisciplinary research and collaboration. The following eminent UCLA researchers will be the panelists:
- Karen McKinnon, Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, Department of Statistics
- Jacob Foster, Department of Sociology
- Miriam Marlier, Environmental Health Sciences
- Jim McWilliams, Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences
The panel will explore the benefits and roles of interdisciplinary research and collaborations in academia. The panelists will discuss the barriers that may discourage researchers from pursuing multidisciplinary research opportunities and dive into whether the current academic training sufficiently prepares us for multidisciplinary collaboration and how to rise to the challenges of such partnerships. Each panelist has vast experience working on collaborative projects and creating multidisciplinary teams. The audience will also have a chance to ask questions.
