“I work for the CBWNP under the direct auspices of Dr. Richard Pilch and Dr. Ray Zilinskas. Currently I am working on a paper comparing international and national response measures to natural emerging disease outbreaks and evaluating what can be learned and improved upon for application in biological threat response. I have really enjoyed my internship! Everyone I have worked with has been exceptionally helpful and exceedingly knowledgeable. This internship offers an extraordinary opportunity to interact and learn from professionals in the field of nonproliferation. Monterey is a gorgeous place. The ocean views are out of this world and there are ample outdoor activities, including biking, climbing, and camping in the surrounding area.”
