Meet our new PhD students: Autumn 2021
Management Science and Engineering is excited to welcome all new students as we begin the new school year!
As they arrived on campus, we had the pleasure of meeting some of our vibrant, diverse and talented 2021 PhD cohort. The students come from specializations in a variety of fields, such as environmental science, bioengineering, data science, cognitive science, computer science engineering, physics, mathematics and more.
Get to know some of our newest PhD students below:
Meet Enrica Archetti
Hometown: Clusane, Brescia, Italy
"I would like to understand better how markets work and make them more accessible."
Meet Adrienne Baer
