2012-2013 GSL Team

 

Co-Directors

  Danny Cohen is a junior political science and economics major and Poverty, Justice, and Human Capabilities minor from Lovett College. He was a member of the inaugural GSL research team for which he was an interviewer, coding session leader, and content editor. He was also a research assistant to Dr. Michael Lindsay, president of Gordon College, for the Platinum Study of Leadership which inspired the formation of GSL. In addition to co-directing GSL this year, he is president of the James A Baker II Institute for Public Policy Student Forum, Lovett College's University Court representative, an Impact Rice adviser, a leader of the Rice University Young Democrats, and a Global Urban Lab alumnus. Danny hopes to apply his experience and lessons from GSL to a career of public service in the federal government.   Amol Utrankar is a junior Economics and Philosophy major at Will Rice College, originally from Edison, New Jersey. As a sophomore, he was a member of the inaugural GSL cohort, which helped him develop his interests in leadership theory and qualitative research methods. Amol has also participated in other GATEWAY programs such as the Rice-BCM Health, Humanism and Society Scholars (HHASS) Program and the SOSC 421 internship course. Besides serving as one of the student leaders for GSL, Amol is the Operations Lieutenant for Rice University Emergency Medical Services, co-President of the South Asian Society, and a student researcher at Baylor College of Medicine. Amol hopes to extend the lessons he has obtained from the GATEWAY program to a career as a physician-social scientist in health services research and public policy.
