"We have a growing gap between scientists and policy-makers," says Ramla K. Qureshi, a PhD candidate in the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, "there needs to be frequent conversation letting them know why our research is important, and why it needs their continuous support."
Ramla Qureshi was nominated by UB’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences to represent the school at the Advancement of Science and Association of Public and Land-grant Universities’ (AAAS) Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering (CASE) workshop in the nation’s capital.
