AAAS Fellow Jeremy Ward Visits CIERA

On December 4th, CIERA received a visit from a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). In June, Jeremy Ward was selected by the Materials Research Society (MRS) and the Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) of the AAAS to serve a one-year term working as a special legislative assistant on the staff of Illinois Senator Dick Durbin.

As an AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellow, Jeremy liaises on issues related to higher education, science and technology, and consumer protection. During his visit to CIERA, he met with graduate students to hear about their work in Illinois classrooms and visited Northwestern’s Visualization Wall, where he viewed movies drawn from CIERA research.
