"Study Abroad -- Our Experiences in Japan"

 Gary Morris & Katherine Kuster, VU Department of Physics and Astronomy

Gary Morris enjoyed his first experience living abroad last year on his Fulbright Scholar Grant to explore the impact of pollution from China on air quality in Japan before, during, and after the Beijing Olympics. Katherine Kuster has lived and studied in Japan three times: first as an undergraduate during a year abroad study program, then as a Monbusho research grantee at the University of Tokyo, and finally as part of Gary's Fulbright Grant. In this presentation, we will provide an overview of our experiences living, studying, and working abroad in Japan, with a focus on how these experiences have impacted our lives, both professionally and personally.
