Last week, graduate student Vidya Kishore represented the University of Tennessee as part of Graduate Education Week at Legislative Plaza in Nashville.
Kishore was the sole representative from the university at the event.
She displayed her research on additive manufacturing at the poster session and received a high level of interest from legislators.
“It was a great experience talking about my work to some of the legislators and it was very encouraging to see the level of interest in manufacturing in Tennessee,” said Kishore.
The event was organized by the Tennessee Conference of Graduate Schools.
Kishore is a PhD student in The Bredesen Center and is advised by MABE Associate Professor Chad Duty.
