Anjuli is currently pursuing a master's degree in Technology and Policy at MIT. She describes a typical day: The most important aspect of graduate school is research. I interact with my research group and my advisor. I spend a large part of my time reading journals and articles, developing models of water resource allocation and writing papers to keep current on my research topic.
Anjuli recalls her favorite memory of the WISE RP: Two of my fondest memories from WISE RP events are the "Pies on WISE" and painting a mural in the East Quad Cooley Zero hallway with residents.
Words of wisdom from Anjuli: Take advantage of all the resources the university has to offer: join activities, go abroad, play a sport, learn a new language, lead a society. All these are part of the university experience and will help make you a better rounded person for any future endeavors.
Anjuli passes on some advice: Learn to focus; whatever you choose to do with your time, give it your full attention.
