In early November Professor Spagat was in Worcester Massachusetts, USA, where he spoke to senior school students at the Bancroft School. The theme of the talk was under their “Lunch with a Scientist” programme.
Professor Spagat spoke about this research specialism of Armed Conflict. In addition, he talked to the students about career paths in science.
Professor Spagat’s talk was well received and we can all take something away from his vast experience and knowledge. His inspirational key messages were:
Career is important but you’ll spend most of your life on your career - so for now Experiment
Learn from others and even emulate others - but Follow your own path
Recognize that following your own path is risky - Adapt
Work with people who complement your strengths – Teamwork
