Why LEO?

"I was drawn to join LEO because of the passion and dedication they show for their mission and their research. LEO not only conducts quality research but takes the extra steps to see it used and applied in the fight against poverty. I have always wanted my work to help others and LEO has given me the opportunity to combine my skills in research with my passion for service. I am thrilled to have the chance to be a part of and learn from a team of such driven and thoughtful people."
