GHI/PEER Interns Gain Real-World Experience in India

As part of a joint internship program between PEER and GeoHazards International (GHI) UC Berkeley undergraduates Aurora Smedley and Carly Schaeffer had the opportunity to travel to Aizawl, India to conduct earth science and engineering research with GHI’s staff, local geology students from Mizoram University, and local engineers and architects.
