Alana has worked on Dr. Micheline van Riemsdijk’s project on international skilled migration since January 2014. In Summer 2014, Alana will code and analyze interviews with foreign-born engineers to better understand the personal and institutional challenges that skilled migrants experience in Norway. Alana studies Environmental and Soil Sciences, and she is pursuing minors in Biology and Watershed. Alana described the benefits of the internship as follows: “Being a part of an interdisciplinary team and participating in weekly discussions will prepare me for working in academia and research; many of the world’s greatest problems require cooperation between diverse individuals and across disciplines.”
