Professor Harry B. Gray

"The Joy of Teaching and Research"

Professor Harry Gray often tells his students that being a good scientist requires more than just a single focus on research. Effective communication skills, a willingness to take risks, and a broad perspective gained through diverse experiences can contribute to better science through unexpected discoveries and insights. Additionally, he firmly believes that research and teaching go hand in hand and that both can be great fun! Join us as Prof. Gray shares his perspectives on the essential elements that contribute to excellence in science, teaching, and research.
