- WISP Lunch with Dr. Stephanie Pfirman — Please join us for lunch and informal conversation with environmental scientist Dr. Stephanie Pfirman
When: March 1, 12:30p.m. - 1:45 p.m.
Where: 212 Collis
RSVP: Blitz WISP by Friday, February 26
Please also note her public lecture that day: The Last Arctic Sea Ice Refuge, 4:30,p.m., 006 Steele Hall. Sponsored by the Institute of Arctic Studies and NASA Space Grant.
Professor Pfirman is the department chair of Environmental Science at Barnard College, as well as an adjunct research scientist at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University. Current interests include environmental aspects of sea ice in the Arctic and the development of women scientists and interdisciplinary scholars. Pfirman wasn't always so sure that her chosen field of study would be so critical. When considering her postdoctoral research she recalls, "I was thinking, 'Who cares about surging glaciers, anyway. It seemed like such a remote issue. I thought I should do something that was more important. It's funny because now everyone wants to know more about glaciers given concerns about global sea level rise."

Graduate students at Dartmouth are a wonderful resource for WISP and a valuable part of our community, both in and out of the lab and classroom. In recognition of Graduate Appreciation Week (April 5 - 11) this is a great opportunity for undergrads to get to know some of the graduate women in science at Dartmouth and to get insight and advice about the graduate school experience. A light lunch will be served.
