Undergraduate students from the University of Utah and Utah State University (USU) displayed their research for Utah lawmakers in the rotunda of the state Capitol in Salt Lake City on Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2016. Among the participants were USU and iUTAH 2015 iFellows Viviane Baji and Matthew Barnett. Both Matt and Viviane worked with faculty mentor Dr. Doug Jackson-Smith of Utah State University.
“We were excited to be at the state Capitol, “said Baji. “It was a blast to present our iUTAH research and have legislators come by to talk with us about the importance of our work.”
These students will get the chance to present their work again next month at the annual Utah Conference on Undergraduate Research (UCUR) in Salt Lake City, along with USU iFellow Jordan Risley. In addition to attending these statewide conferences, Viviane Baji was accepted to the National Undergrad Research Conference, which will be held in Asheville, North Carolina, later this spring.
