Undergraduate Assistants

UIC Undergraduate assistants, independent research students and volunteers

Undergraduate volunteers are an extremely vital part of my research.  Research on the leaf-litter arthropod community entails many hours of sorting and identification of thousands of arthropods from the various sampled sites.  Interested individuals wanting to assist with my research can do so in a variety of ways, including Volunteering, doing work for college credit (BIOS 199, 391), or structuring an undergraduate research project (BIOS 399).  To date, I've had 20 people work with me in the lab, including a retired teacher, high school students, and many UIC undergraduate assistants, some of which have assisted with my field work.
