A wide range of opportunities exist for undergraduate research. Our faculty have supervised numerous undergrad research projects, including recent Honors theses and independent studies. Many opportunities are supported by NSF grants and have led to publications co-authored by students. Contact any faculty member and consult with your advisor about obtaining course credit for your research project.

Undergraduate student, Holly Jeffries, is a member of Professor Karen Johannesson's Environmental Biogeochemistry group. Holly is prepping columns for anion exchange, separating Arsenic V which stays in the column from Arsenic III which passes through the column. The columns are being prepared to study arsenic speciation in lakes of the McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antartica. Holly is funded through a NSF collaborative research grant.
