“All of our students did a phenomenal job designing their posters, and they presented with such professionalism and enthusiasm,” said co-advisers Amy Ma and Nadia Parikka. “It was exciting to see them there in person, which our elders don’t even have the ability to do. We are very proud of them and wish them well this summer as they work with their mentors to achieve their research goals.
