Don’t be afraid to do research in an area you don’t know much about or think is not that interesting. It may be that over the course of your research you develop a deep interest for it!
Major: Biochemistry and Elements of Computing
Graduation Year: 2022

To those thinking about research, I would tell them to not be afraid and to just go for any opportunity they are considering because it will surprise them how natural and welcoming research can be. It is not a competition, but rather a supportive and patient community ready to welcome any contributions from passionate minds.
Major: Computer Science and Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2021
I really encourage students to try out different research projects to find ones that interest them the most and then stick to those projects, as the more you persevere, the more you learn and enjoy.
Major: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2023
Research something you are passionate about. Don’t research something that you’re not interested in because you want to build your resume or you want to publish a paper. Passion really shows in research.
