Clarkson Research Professor Dana Barry lectures in Japan
POTSDAM — Clarkson Research Professor Dana Barry, of Canton, was an invited Lecturer in late September for the National Institute of Technology, Suzuka College, Japan.
Her presentation promoted the North Country and Research for Women in Japan.Dr. Barry started her talk by informing students, faculty, and administrators, about important attractions in Northern New York such as the St. Lawrence Seaway, the Frederick Remington Museum, and the Corning plant in Canton, where the glass for the famous Hubble telescope was made.
She also described the great/diverse educational opportunities and institutions available in the North Country (SUNY Canton and St. Lawrence University in Canton and SUNY Potsdam and Clarkson University in Potsdam).
In addition, Research Professor Barry discussed highlights of her research experiences and provided tips for women and others interested in pursuing research opportunities. Her entire talk was presented in English, so the college’s English professor (Prof. Takashi Kusaka) translated sections of it into Japanese.
