2015 Intern Spotlight: David Munnelly

David Munnelly

“This research was unique because I found it to be a lot more engaging than other programs back home. For example, we were constantly updated on current events in the remit of non-proliferation and were encouraged greatly by members of the faculty to learn as much as we can but also to incorporate it into a project that we would pursue for the time that we are here. You have to be willing to take every opportunity that is presented to you. If there is a topic that interests you, find the professor who is an expert in that field. Don’t wait for them to come to you. If you want to be part of something, you have to create that opportunity yourself; that’s the best way to get contacts and be remembered as an integral part of this opportunity.”
