MIIS Alumni Working Together to Further International Cooperation in Aeronautics
January 7, 2013
Garvey McIntosh (MAIPS ’03), an international programs specialist at NASA headquarters in Washington D.C., recently traveled to Seoul, South Korea to engage in discussions with senior representatives from the Korean government to identify cooperative areas between the US and South Korea in the field of aeronautics. Garvey wrote to the Monterey Institute to tell us about the instant rapport and wonderful working relationship he established with Kristen Bauman (MAIPS ’99), science counselor at the US Embassy in Seoul. “Due to Kristen’s diligent efforts, our meetings were extremely productive,” said Garvey, adding that he “feels very fortunate and proud to work closely with a talented MIIS alumna on activities that will undoubtedly be mutually beneficial to the US and South Korea.”
Monterey Institute alumni are everywhere, and making a difference every day!
