Teja interning with Synapse this winter

Teja is heading to her internship at Synapse Product Development in Seattle! She'll be a Sustainable Design Research Intern for the next 3 months, performing user research to discover what designers and engineers need from novel life cycle assessment tools. We hope her efforts will lay the groundwork for a longstanding collaboration with Synapse and that her insights will richly inform the LCA tool she plans to begin developing upon returning to Dartmouth.

Teja selected as a Runner for the Magnuson Center's West Coast Experience

Teja is taking part in another Dartmouth Entrepreneurs Forum opportunity, having been selected as a Runner for the West Coast Experience Program! The West Coast Experience is run by the Magnuson Center each year for a group of 10-12 undergraduate students, who will spend a week traveling to Seattle, San Francisco, and Palo Alto to visit Dartmouth alumni at startups, incubators, and VC firms. It'll also be a great opportunity for Teja to meet potential clients, pitch her research, and get feedback!
