MBA Student Presents at Energy Conference in Turkey
Ms. Gill's research abstract was accepted for presentation through connections she made during her 2013 Academic Global Immersion (AGI) trip to Turkey and the Middle East. "The connections and friendships I made during the conference will be very beneficial to my future," said Ms. Gill, "and I would not have been able to do so without participating in our 2013 AGI this winter, where I met key figures in the Turkish renewable energy sector."
Professor Mouwafac Sidaoui leads the annual AGI trip to Turkey and the Middle East, and he encouraged Ms. Gill to submit her abstract to the IRENEC conference. "Professor Sidaoui served as a great advisor to my research," added Ms. Gill. Her trip was largely funded through USF's Graduate Student Business Association. Since attending the conference in Turkey, Ms. Gill has also been invited to speak at an Emerging Industry conference in Shenzen, China. "I look forward to representing USF again at future conferences," said Ms. Gill.
