...Lets Do Lunch!

Posted on 11/11/2013

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
