«My Fulbright program was an incredible, life-changing experience that exceeded all my expectations. In just four short months, I was able to achieve all my professional goals and immerse myself in one of the most prestigious universities and laboratories in my research field. Working within such a dynamic and engaging environment pushed me to new heights and provided a significant boost to my Ph.D.. Boston is in fact an amazing, multicultural hub, and within such a vibrant and historic city you always feel that time is too short to explore all its corners. Living with an American family and participating in their cultural festivities was an enriching experience that allowed me to immerse myself fully in the American way of life and gain a deeper understanding of their customs and traditions. In the big picture, my Fulbright experience was an all-around experience, where I not only expanded my research network, but also gained new perspectives on American culture and values. I was able to forge new and lasting friendships that will stay with me for a lifetime.

I am forever grateful to Fulbright for providing me with this opportunity!»


Thank you, Daniel, for being part of this friendly and diverse community. Welcome back!
