“Spending a summer with HRI was an awesome change of gear. It was incredible to go from lectures and examinations in undergrad to critical thinking and hands-on experiments in the lab. The access to cutting-edge equipment and the support from successful researchers inspired me to return to HRI for my Honours year.”
