Over the summer, Abby worked on the aquaculture team at biodiversity startup FaunaPhotonics in Copenhagen, Denmark. Her project was to design a laser to detect salmon lice larvae before they could affect salmon crops.
"A big part of Danish culture is biking as transportation. I rented a bike for the duration of my stay, and I used it to go to work, go out, buy groceries, etc. There are even very nice bike lanes in 90% of streets in Denmark, so it is safer for the bikers. Fun fact, bikes outnumber people in Denmark."
"My internship in Denmark was a great way to consider a different working and living culture than what is common in the US. I gained skills in balancing working hard and having a significant social life."
