Graduate Student Publication: Nereyda Ortiz Osejo

Lets celebrate our successes! Please join us in congratulating our graduate student, Nereyda Ortiz Osejo on her co-authored publication titled “Engaging the Guatemala Scientific Diaspora: The Power of Networking and Shared Learning” published at Frontiers in Research Metrics and Analytics. You can find the article here:

This article focuses on Guatemalan highly skilled migrants in developing countries and their opportunities/threats to contribute to their home country. To do this, Nereyda’s team won a grant that allowed them to do focus groups and semi-structured interviews! From the abstract: “This research applied qualitative methodology that, through the conduction of focus group discussions and semi-structured interviews with members of the Guatemalan scientific community and relevant key stakeholders, delved into the existence and articulation of the Guatemalan Scientific Diaspora (GSD) and potential stages for their engagement with their country of origin. Findings highlight the importance of digital and technological pathways that might leverage the GSD’s knowledge and experience, channeling skills, and international connections for better interaction with the Guatemalan society.”

Congratulations, Nereyda! Way to go!!
