"The Fellows did a fantastic job of organizing this event! I appreciated how you supported and guided all the speakers, especially during technical issues. For the presenters: O'Juan: Your presentation was information and clear while at the same time being professional and sensitive to the issue. I learned a lot from this, great work! Siddhartha: You were very clear in your presentation and the animations/slides you used to supplement your talking were beautiful and engaging! It might help you to practice with Zoom a bit because I know from experience that it gets very tricky :). Despite the technological troubles, however, I would like to point out that you remained very calm and professional and got right back into the flow of the presentation. Great work! Stacy and Kindle: Great job! This was so interesting and creative. I thought you did a wonderful job of breaking down engineering concepts so they are more understandable for an audience less familiar with them as well."
"Amazing opportunity to learn about research in vastly different fields! Sometimes you get so caught up in your own research that you forget people from different fields may be able to help. This provides that opportunity!"
"Thank you, O'Juan! This was incredibly informative. Just to give speaker feedback -- I thought the way you presented the information was very professional, clear, and showed genuine empathy for the issue at hand."
"I like the animation on the global simulation Gulf Stream!"
"Great job, Siddhartha! This was very informative and your slides and animations were beautiful and engaging. Regarding the Zoom, technical issues--I just want to comment that you did a fantastic job fixing the issues and remaining calm/professional while doing so! :) "
"Thank you so much for understanding and helping me out with the technical issues. It was a pleasure sharing my research with you guys and receiving so nice and productive feedback from you."
"Nice presentation Stacy and Kindle!"
"Great job, Stacy and Kindle! This was very interesting and creative. I especially appreciated how your carefully explained engineering/structural concepts for audience members not as familiar with engineering"
"Awesome presentation Stacy! I love the interdisciplinary nature of your research especially using the spring with dampener system to simulate the leg muscle movements!"
