Her Work in Four Countries Prepares a Bioengineering Student for a Global Career

It might seem unusual that Kerry Eller discovered her passion for bioengineering during a month-long Dialogue of Civilizations to the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. After all, it was an international relations program with courses on disarmament and international law. But in addition to her classes, Eller conducted independent research for a paper on global engineering. These are just a couple of experiences that led Eller to earn the Truman Scholar and the Harold D. Hodgkinson Award.
