Current Undergraduate Researchers

Are you interested in gaining research experience?

I am always looking for committed and engaged students who are interested in getting their "feet wet" with research. I have a number of projects that focus on freshwater ecology, which involve both field and laboratory investigation. I usually ask that interested students volunteer 2 - 3 hours in my lab for a semester before embarking on a research project. Research projects are usually conducted for credit (minimum of 2 cr) under the BIO 499 course listing. If you're interested, feel free to contact me. I would be happy to discuss our current projects and give you a tour of our research facilities. With adequate preparation and a good GPA there are also possibilities for competing for a Dean's Distinguished Fellowship.
