Speaker: Dr. Emily Sarver
Assistant Professor of Mining and Minerals Engineering,
Topic: Being X-Disciplinary
As a new tenure-track professor of mining and minerals engineering, Dr. Sarver blends core competencies to build a research program aimed at understanding and minimizing environmental impacts of mineral and energy resource production. Her x-disciplinary approach, where x is "inter," "trans," "multi," "cross," or another suitably ambiguous modifier, brings new perspective and the realization that success will depend upon non-traditional audiences, support, and collaborations. She will share this approach in the context of projects that her research group is currently initiating, and invite you to consider how being x-disciplinary may impact in your career.
