Showcase Spotlight

Whether their research influences health policy, impacts urban communities, or transforms how history is told, the graduate students presenting at the Doctoral Research Showcase are determined to use their knowledge to bring about positive change in the world:

Anduin Wilhide, a Ph.D. candidate in history, explores and documents the histories of Somali migration in Minnesota through collaborating with the community and using digital media to tell their fascinating stories.

Jessica Nickrand, who studies the History of Science and Technology, investigates the relationship between a city's economic status and its residents' health in her work, which has important implications for contemporary urban health policy.

Delford Doherty, a Ph.D. candidate in Social & Administrative Pharmacy, examines the impact of low-income subsidies for health care on beneficiaries and aspires to work in politics someday.

Meet these scholars at the showcase on April 8, 2014 where they will be presenting their work along with nearly 80 other graduate students – each of whom is the recipient of a prestigious doctoral fellowship from the Graduate School.
