Research Week, UC Merced’s annual celebration of faculty and student research, was held last week and was highlighted by a student research poster competition and a number of lectures and symposia.
Winners have been announced in the undergraduate and graduate Student Research Poster Competitions. One winner was chosen from each of UC Merced’s three schools — Engineering, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts — in both the undergraduate and graduate competitions.
In the undergraduate competition, Preeti Bangalore won for the School of Engineering, Lauren Edwards for Natural Sciences, and Rubinpreet Kaur for Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts. Each received a $50 gift certificate to the College Store from the Associated Students of UC Merced and a certificate of achievement from the Office of Research, and each will have their name engraved on the Research Poster Winners Hall of Fame plaque.
In the graduate division, Emily Reed won for the School of Engineering; Heather Thompson won for Natural Sciences; and Michelle Greenwood won for Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts. Each will receive a monetary award of $100 and a certificate of achievement from the Office of Research.
