#### Potential Grauate Student Research Mentors

The following link contains a list of graduate students interested in supervising undergraduate research projects. They have volintarily given their names and information so feel free to contact them. We recommend making appointments to meet with at least 3 graduate students and, after meeting, choosing the one that you think would be the best fit. You do not need to prepare anything for the initial meeting, instead just have a breif converstation and ask them to tell you about what they do.
