Student Spotlight with Global Ambassador Juliana Pereira


Juliana Pereira is from a small island called Florianópolis, located in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil. Juliana is pursuing a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering with a research focus in Geotechnical Engineering – the study of foundations. She also did her masters at Purdue in the same department.

“You should be prepared to study a lot. Purdue has an excellent reputation, and only great students are accepted. Even if you are a fantastic student in your home country, at Purdue, everybody is incredibly smart, and you need to keep up with all your classmates. However, Purdue gives the base for you to thrive. Amazing laboratories, famous speakers from all over the world, you have all the infrastructure you need to be your best self.” — Juliana Pereira
