Alli's adventures in Sweden

Alli's research trip to Sweden was featured in a Drexel article:

"It’s important to make connections and take advantage of every available resource while you’re at Drexel. Nobody knows that better than Alli Spiller, a pre-junior psychology student and criminal justice minor from the College of Arts and Sciences.

Spiller used said connections and resources to create and finance a three-month research co-op in Trollhättan, Sweden. She was able to take this trip was because of the International Experience Funding Award she received from Drexel’s Office of International Programs. She heard about the award from her two-time co-op employer Gabriela Marcu, PhD, an assistant professor in the College of Computing & Informatics.

It all began last year when Spiller started her first research co-op in Marcu’s Emphatic Design and Technology lab, which specializes in research that addresses social problems through design and technology.

'Co-op is an opportunity to explore different interests, to rule them either in or out of future career plans,' said Spiller. 'Research was one area I had yet to delve into, so that intrigued me and made me want to work in the lab.'"
