Learn About Research in Our Lab

The primary researcher, Dr. Sandy Jung, involves undergraduate researchers in her projects. Normally, students may become involved in a number of ways, such as entering the honours program, acceptance as an independent study student, or volunteering as a research assistant.

For the 2019-2020 academic year:

  • Please note that Dr. Jung may be looking for one or two volunteers.
  • She has accepted one honours student and one independent study student (Winter semester).  

She will be taking on two independent study students for the 2020-2021 academic year. For consideration, please contact Dr. Jung to make an appointment. Additional information for potential students is available here.
