Sherin is excited to have the opportunity to be involved with iPANEL which spans her areas of interest and provides a unique opportunity to work with internationally known experts and to acquire the range of skills required to become a successful independent researcher. She looks forward to participating in iPANEL meetings, conferences and research as well as learning how to conduct practice-relevant research that shortens the gap from knowledge creation to implementation.
