The Graduate Student Council also has the pleasure of welcoming renowned career specialist Peter Fiske, Ph.D. to the Vanderbilt GSC’s 3MT. He has written two books about professionalization, and has had a myriad of experiences from working in the White House and at the Pentagon, publishing in high impact journals like Science, and helping found a business to commercialize a novel technology. He has a Ph.D. in Geological and Environmental Sciences from Stanford University, and is currently the CEO of PAX Water Technologies, Inc. in San Rafael, California.

Dr. Fiske will give a talk entitled “Putting your Ph.D. to WORK!”, in which he will share his extensive and eclectic experience and give advice on professionalization after Graduate School.

Lunch will be provided, and this part of the 3MT is open for all, but lunches will be limited so get there early to get a lunch and a good seat!
