The connections between Andrea Pack’s academic interests at UVM—she majored in neuroscience and minored in math and dance—might at first glance seem obscure. But doing science is a creative process, Pack says, and she draws on all three disciplines in her graduate school research, which is supported by a National Science Foundation grant announced earlier this spring.
Emma Tait of Marshfield, Vt., graduated Suma Cum Laude in May 2017 with a degree in geography and minors in computer science and geospatial technologies.
Doing science is a painstaking process of testing and re-testing hypotheses that often leads to dead ends and multiple trips back to the drawing board. But sometimes a completely unexpected result turns up, and when there are skilled eyes to see it, a moment of serendipity makes up for months of uncertainty.
