Monica Glina started working for REDSS Lab in November of 2014. She first heard about the lab when they approached her about an open position! The team was interested in working with someone who has qualitative experience, and Monica’s experience and background made her a perfect fit.
Monica was hoping to make a substantive contribution to the lab and bring an education lens to its projects. Most of all, she was excited to learn about the areas that the lab researches. As to accomplishing what she had hoped, Monica declares that things are always a work in progress. Her favorite part about working in the lab is the work and the people, “so it’s really the best of both worlds.”
When asked what advice she would give to future students, Monica said, “If you have the opportunity to work in a research lab, I would strongly encourage it. There are the obvious benefits and experiences, but then there are numerous positive outcomes that really only manifest themselves once you’re a part of an ambitious and prolific team.”
