“All our students did a phenomenal job designing their posters, and they presented so professionally and with such enthusiasm,” co-advisers Amy Ma and Nadia Parikka said. “It was exciting to see them present in person, something our seniors haven’t even had the ability to do. We are so proud of them and wish them well this summer as they work with their mentors towards their research goals.”
