Doctoral Student Awarded Prestigious SAVI Award
Amy Pace, a doctoral student in the Joint Doctoral Program in Language and Communicative Disorders, mentored by Dr. Margaret Friend in Psychology, has been awarded a prestigious Science Across Virtual Institutes (SAVI) award to support her travel to Budapest, Hungary where she will meet with Dr. Gergely Csibra to train students in EEG/ERP lab open-source analysis approaches to spatial learning and to develop a research proposal for future collaboration. Dr. Csibra is an internationally renowned scholar in spatial learning research.
From the National Science Foundation’s SAVI homepage:
“Science Across Virtual Institutes (SAVI) is a mechanism to foster interaction among scientists, engineers and educators around the globe. It is based on the knowledge that excellence in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) research and education exists in many parts of the world, and that scientific advances can be accelerated by scientists and engineers working together across international borders. Virtual institutes that connect researchers with shared interests and goals will have a great impact on solving important societal challenges.”
