Henry Tran is a Graduate Student in the Van Voorhis Group.
Being a graduate student at MIT is unique because the network of researchers leading their fields extends beyond [the Institute]. The entire Greater Boston Area is home to a vast network of the top researchers in their fields and MIT, being at the center of all the universities in the area, is the ideal location for collaboration and scientific discourse. In addition, the Greater Boston Area is home to a variety of companies interested in chemists, and MIT is an important recruitment hot spot. The university and the department are very helpful in alerting us to the many opportunities for our post-PhD prospects.
