Past Purdue ELISS fellows


ELISS is a great opportunity for Cancer Biologists because it allows you to step away from the microscopic view of complex real-world challenges in our society, and dive into exploring these challenges hand-on through the eyes and ears of your community and beyond while working on multi-campus interdisciplinary teams! - Mariya Krisenko, PhD student in PULSe


ELISS provides an exciting arena to both learn from the perspectives of others and apply your own expertise. The perspectives that I have gained already through working with such a diverse team have really opened my eyes. For me, ELISS is an outlet to translate the research I am learning to relevant and complex problems. I’m excited about the opportunity to make a difference and serve the community.strong> -Jonathan Kershaw, PhD student in Food Science


ELISS provides many exciting opportunities for Liberal Arts students to collaborate with scientists, policy analysts, and talented graduate students from a variety of disciplines to tackle complex problems in our society. The leadership training and interdisciplinary collaborations with fellows from four distinguished institutions are valuable experience that will benefit my professional career and personal development for many years.-Kai Kuang, PhD Candidate in Communication


ELISS has been a wonderful experience for me, as a Hospitality and Tourism Management PhD student; because of ELISS, I now have the opportunity to collaborate with other students, across the country, involved in very different majors than I am used to interacting with. I’ve learned so much from the other fellows already and have truly had my intellectual comfort zone stretched beyond what I ever imagined. The skills I am learning through ELISS will carry on with me for years to come, both professionally and academically.Abby Boggs, PhD student in Hospitality and Tourism Management
