Undergraduate Research

Standard

MandyPosterIt’s research presentation season at the University of Michigan, and Duffy lab undergraduates always have a way of putting together great stories about their research. Recently Amanda Bromilow presented her honors thesis on the behavior of white sharks around diving cages and implications that may have for conservation.

Solanus de la Serna conducted research this academic year with guidance from Dr. Catherine Searle. He was sponsored through the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP). Solanus looked at the effects of an invasive species of Daphnia on disease dynamics in mesocosm experiments.

Alan Longworth also presented research related to the identification and characterization of a novel fungal parasite of Daphnia. Alan also was sponsored through the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP). We are very excited to see where this project will go!

Great job everyone!SolanusPoster
