Talks around Town

After getting back from Ukraine I had about a week break to recuperate before I was out giving talks online in my home state of Minnesota talking to a colleagues class at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University about my recent trip to Ukraine, human trafficking, and conducting research during war. The students gathered a list of almost 40 questions for me based on an article I wrote on human trafficking and Russia's war in Ukraine. It was a great opportunity to talk about my trip and share my experiences good and bad about conducting research during war.

Then on Wednesday one of my students and I went to give a talk about the Millikin Alumni House to our local PEO Chapter. The P.E.O. Sisterhood is a U.S.-based international women's organization with a primary focus on providing educational opportunities for female students. I spoke about human trafficking in Central Illinois and my student learned more about how I give talks about the lab. It was interesting since there were a few women who had run for political office that I recognized and I am always happy to share our research and knowledge from the lab with political candidates.
