This virtual career panel hosted by the Cornell China Center features three accomplished Cornell alumni pursuing academic paths in sustainability research.

They will discuss their interdisciplinary approaches and methodologies as well as their personal stories and takeaways from their academic journeys, offering valuable guidance and inspiration to students, postdocs, and alumni who are interested in sustainability.
