Tiffany Goes to Trenton

SciencepolicyFridaycSw staffer Tiffany Zhou has been accepted as an intern for NJ Assemblyman Dan Benson. He serves as the Vice Chair of the Assembly Health and Senior Services Committee, has a STEM education in physics, and has sponsored several STEM-related bills. Her work will mostly focus on reviewing STEM policy to help the Assemblyman work on new bills. After she mentioned that she has been on the staff of cSw since its inception, he asked if she could work on STEM-related blog posts called “Science Policy Friday.” Previously, blog post topics have ranged from drones to spotlights on women in STEM. He was also very interested to hear that Tiffany attended the AJAS conference and met former Senator Rush Holt, who also has a political and scientific background.
