As a chemist Rachel Feeny finds solutions to important scientific problems through networking and collaboration. “Initially my interest in chemistry began when I realized that often solutions to real-world problems come from understanding things at a molecular level. Now I find it fascinating to take what I know and collaborate with scientists in many different fields to address shared problems”. This interdisciplinary work approach is often overlooked by STEM researchers who tend to spend a majority of their time in their respective laboratories. However, when individuals with different training backgrounds and skillsets come together, the possibilities are endless! Read more of Rachel’s interview to discover how she uses her training and network from various disciplines to foster innovated solutions to current problems.
