STPF Fellows are great at adapting their careers to suit their personal interests and whatever life has in store, such as a global pandemic. In this episode, Dr. Vince Tedjasaputra talks about how his involvement in track and field led to his earning a PhD in Physical Education and Recreation (an official “Doctor of Gym”), and how working with patients with mild chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) led to his becoming a AAAS STPF Fellow. As a self-proclaimed extrovert, Dr. Tedjasaputra talks about his external-facing communications work in the Office of Legislative and Public Affairs at the National Science Foundation, as well as how he has adapted since working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
