What Attracted Me to CURL:

I have a wide range of interests, so the inter-disciplinary nature of CURL’s work is very appealing to me. I am also drawn to CURL’s efforts to collaborate with community and government organizations. They strive to find sound, comprehensive solutions to pressing social problems that will offer long-term benefits to everyone in society. CURL’s applied research is direct and impactful.

What I Hope to Gain from CURL:

I hope to learn about urban problems from many different perspectives and work towards a solution. In particular, I am thrilled to have the chance to learn more about Chicago and its people. I am from the area, and a chance to positively impact Chicagoland would be very rewarding. Also, the opportunity to learn and practice research skills will be an invaluable experience.
