Hi! My name is Bronwyn, I use she/her pronouns, and I am a senior at Tufts University majoring in Interdisciplinary Studies. Through the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies at Tufts, I have created my own major, uniquely combining Education, Civic Studies, and Sociology; I am also studying Religion as a minor concentration. At Tufts, I am also involved with the Tisch College for Civic Life as a Tisch Scholar, and have worked with a variety of community-based nonprofits in the greater Boston area for the past three years. At Tufts, I also work as a Spanish tutor and teach a weekly kickboxing class. Overall, I am very passionate about issues of education, specifically literacy, accessibility, sustainability, and holistic equity. I am honored to be a Laidlaw Scholar and feel very grateful for the opportunity to pursue such meaningful work!

I am an undergraduate scholar and an International Relations and Social Anthropology student at St Andrews. Growing up in various countries across Asia and Europe, I have become particularly interested in global politics, postcolonialism, and social justice. I am also passionate about languages, and speak Chinese, Persian, Urdu, French, and Spanish to varying degrees, in addition to my native Hindi and English.
I am a rising Junior at Tufts University studying Biology and Computer Science. I tend to get excited about Bioinformatics, computational biology, and data science. This summer my research involves using network propagation methods to determine genes that are associated with Alzheimer's Disease.
In my free time, I like to journal, explore nature, and travel to new places.
Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or comments about my work, I am always happy to chat about it!
I am a third year undergraduate studying astrophysics at the University of St Andrews. My research interest is in exoplanetary science, specifically cloud formation in exoplanetary atmospheres and how this process influences the abundance of bio-tracers in atmospheres.
I enjoy running in St Andrews and at home. I am an active contributor to Strava, and train regularly for running events. I also frequently use the university gym and follow regular fitness routines to complement my running.
My passions also extend to music: I play and conduct in the university wind orchestra and I have also played with several brass bands in the local community. Additionally, I am the events manager for the university music society, and I am working on new and exciting ways to organise online socials for the society.
Hi! My name is Andra, and I am a junior at Tufts University majoring in Clinical Psychology with a minor in Child Studies and Human Development. I am currently working as an undergraduate research assistant in a PTSD Neuroimaging lab at Tufts. For Laidlaw, I'll be working in this lab on a project studying racial discrimination as a traumatic stressor.
I'm excited to be a member of the 2021 Laidlaw Scholars Cohort, and looking forward to connecting with others in this network!
Hi fellow scholars! My name is Mindy Duggan and I am a rising Junior undergraduate student at Tufts University. I am so excited to get to know as many of you as possible and complete my research this summer— which is on autism representation in the hit television show The Good Doctor. I will be asking for participants so if you are interested, please feel free to reach out! During my free time, I love to volunteer with kids— especially children with disabilities. I also love escaping to nature, camping, and trying hole-in-the-wall food places :)
Hello everyone, my name is Cesar Urzua and I am a current sophomore at Tufts University studying Biology and Child Study and Human Development. I am very excited to be a part of the Laidlaw Scholars Program and hope to be able to talk with so many other scholars soon. For my research, I will be focusing on brain response when presented to adverse childhood experiences, and how to possibly develop optimal strategies to combat chronic neural perturbations following these adverse childhood experiences.
I am an undergraduate Laidlaw Scholar studying Philosophy and Politics at the University of York. I am very interested in climate education. My project investigates collective responsibility regarding climate change in the primary years of school.
I am a final-year undergraduate scholar pursuing a BA (Hons) in English Literature and Linguistics at the University of York. Besides being a scholar, I am the Arts and Humanities Subject Lead on the Scholar's Network and the 2020-22 Arts and Humanities faculty rep at the University of York! My first summer of research was based in phonetics, entitled 'The untapped potential of human language: Investigating the perception of typologically unattested and rare sounds'. In it, I get to look at phonemes that are not commonly found in speech, if at all!
My Leadership in Action project was based around the experiences of students with disabilities and long-term health conditions when accessing Higher Education in the UK. I'm currently creating teacher training based on the paper I wrote for this project, and working with UCAS to help inform UK university admissions policy.
