Carolyn does project management to support scientists doing science.
Why I chose EPFL EMBA?I chose to do my EMBA at EPFL because I believe the focus on innovation management can provide vital insights for successful management in scientific collaborations. Scientific collaborations, such as those in astrophysics and astronomy, provide a natural birth place for innovation. The resulting consortia experience unique challenges as they develop large-scale projects dedicated to exploring our universe. In the academic environment, principal investigators (scientists) are currently not only responsible for leading research, but also the design, construction, and commission of the instrumentation that enables their research. As management needs increase, universities are experiencing a cultural shift, leading to questions about how project managers and innovative business practices can fit into these organizational structures. I hope to focus the knowledge gained in the EPFL EMBA to begin to answer these questions!
