Unlike many groups on campus in which undergraduate researchers are expected to contribute to an on-going project, if you decide to do research with me, you will have the opportunity to lead your own project that you will conduct with my tutelage/assistance/encouragement/interference. If you so choose, you may be partnered with a graduate student on an existing project that will allow you to gain experience with the research process and build skills necessary to lead a successful individual effort.
Students participating in research in my group will have the unique opportunity to perform research in support of national and nuclear security and interact directly with federal agency sponsors as well as national laboratory and government agency stakeholders. The majority of the graduate students in my group are DoD SMART Fellows and came from successful undergraduate programs (my own group and others) where they received undergraduate fellowships, scholarships, and prestigious internships. As a member of my group, you will have the opportunity to leverage my groups connections and success to achieve your education and career goals.
Based on my experience, I believe that the research topics listed below could very well yield interesting and perhaps even publishable results in a journal or for presentation at an exciting conference.
