Description

Hosted by SAA and UA Athletic Community Relations

Join us for an interactive luncheon focusing on science careers. We will have multiple science-based careers represented.

  • Provide students with insights about science careers

  • Find out about different routes you can take to obtain a specific job

The panel includes:

Mónica Acevedo-Molina: My name is Mónica Acevedo-Molina and I am a second-year graduate student in the Clinical Psychology PhD program in the neuropsychology track. I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras, where I majored in Psychology. After I graduated from college, I was elected to participate in the Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP) from the University of Iowa. As a PREP scholar, I conducted Alzheimer's disease research in a neuropsychology lab. As a graduate student in the Human Memory Lab, I am researching the influence of emotion on future thinking among healthy older and younger adults. Ultimately, I would like to research the influence of emotion on other aspects of cognition (e.g., memory) among individuals with neurodegenerative diseases.

Dr. Randall Dull, MD, PhD: Dr. Dull is an appointed professor and chair of the Department of Anesthesiology at The U of A College of Medicine - Tucson. The internationally known physician-scientist has 18 years of clinical anesthesia experience, specifically thoracic, vascular and trauma. He also has more than 20 years of research experience in vascular and pulmonary physiology. Dr. Dull completed bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in physiology at Penn State University. His post-doctoral research training took him to the University of Chicago’s Department of Pathology. He attended medical school at UIC, then moved east to complete his residency at Massachusetts General Hospital, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School. Prior to coming to Tucson, Dr. Dull served as a tenured professor and vice chair for seven years at UIC College of Medicine’s Department of Anesthesiology. He also spent eight years at the University of Utah School of Medicine’s Department of Anesthesiology.

Adam Troussas: Adam grew up in Greece and moved to Phoenix, AZ for high school, then decided to stay for college. He graduated from Arizona State University with a B.S., and later an M.S., in Biomedical Engineering. For two years after getting his master’s, Adam was a working professional in his field. He later decided to pursue medical school and is currently in his third year, completing his internal medicine rotation. Before going to college, Adam was a musician and spent some time touring through the end of high school and early in his undergraduate career.

Andrew Colson: Andrew graduated with a B.S. in Astrophysics from the Florida Institute of Technology. After graduating, he worked as a Research and Instrument Analyst on the Hubble and James Webb space telescopes. Andrew concurrently pursed his M.S. in Software Engineering and Ph.D. in Optical Sciences and Instrumentation from the Johns Hopkins University. The subject of his research and dissertation was multi-conjugate adaptive optics and laser guide star systems. Andrew is employed at the University of Arizona responsible for the software and hardware of various telescopes' adaptive optics systems. In his spare time he enjoys the sport of triathlon - swimming, cycling, and running - and hopes to qualify for the Ironman World Championships.

The panel will take place during the first half the event, and the second half will be a time to mingle with students and give them an opportunity to network.
