We had an exciting breakfast with Professor Jerrod A. Henderson!

Jacob Belding: It was great meeting Prof. Henderson over breakfast – I really enjoyed learning about the work he is doing and hearing about his own story as well. Even though our areas of research might not seem related at first glance, we found common ground in our interest in clever graphical representations of high-dimensional data. And it was also great just to share a good meal with a really nice person!

Belen Sotomayor: It was a wonderful meeting where we learned that introducing kids to STEM early can make a big difference in their lives and academic journeys. We also shared our own stories, got inspired to make a positive impact in the STEM community—whether in academics or beyond!
