Check details and schedule below.

Part One: Vision, Perspectives and Experiences

Subha Chakraborti, Ph.D.

Professor of Statistics

Fulbright Scholar to Brazil, 2022

The University of Alabama U.S.A.

Part Two: Some Observations and Personal Stories

Felipe Schoemer Jardim, Ph. D.

Universidade Federal Fluminense (UFF) Brazil


The research world is energized and is served well by collaborations, interactions and co-operations among students, scholars and researchers from around the world. In the ideal setting, boundaries don’t exist and knowledge flows naturally, enriching everyone. However, getting a productive collaboration/co-operation off the ground may be easier said than done. There are opportunities to be found and yet each comes with its own set of hurdles to overcome. Establishing a successful career may be challenging without proper guidance. In this two-part seminar, two speakers, first, a professor from the University of Alabama in the U.S. and a co-supervisor of the second speaker’s doctoral dissertation at PUC-Rio, a Brazilian university, will share their own visions, perspectives and experiences about the collaborative research process. This will include narratives from a journey lasting over several years, continuing today
