Research and Innovation Lab Assistant

July 2019 - September 2019 White Plains, NY
“Combe has a great work atmosphere. There is a lot of collaboration between Research and Innovation department that I am apart of, with the other departments. I was able to gain hands-on lab experience while also gaining experience in reporting and presenting our findings. I also really enjoyed how the data we collected was used to make actual decisions within the company and products moving forward. My boss also knew I am an Environmental Science Major with a minor in Sustainability, so she was able to connect that to the work I was doing. ”
