Three Wells College students have been accepted for participation at the 31st National Conference on Undergraduate Research, to be held at the University of Memphis, Tennessee, April 5-19. This year will mark the 29th conference in which Wells students have participated, due in large part to the support and coordination of Professor of Chemistry Chris Bailey.

The students who will be presenting their work at NCUR this year (including their major, the title of their work, and their Wells faculty sponsor) are:

  • Meredith Kadjeski '17, Biology, "Dissolved Organic Matter Structure Quality Across a Gradient of North Temperate Lakes" (Professor of Biology and Environmental Science Jackie Schnurr).
  • Mikaela Mehlrose '17, Visual Arts/Art History, "An Exploration of the Intersections of Artistic and Gender Marginalization through the Works of L.J. Roberts" (Visiting Assistant Professor of Art History Nancy Demerdash-Fatemi).
  • Anastasia Toumpas '17, Biology, "Factors Affecting Super-Spreading of Epidemics: A Study of Infection in Peromyscus" (Professor of Biology and Environmental Science Jackie Schnurr).

The National Conferences on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), established in 1987, is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study by sponsoring an annual conference for students. Unlike meetings of academic professional organizations, this gathering of young scholars welcomes presenters from all institutions of higher learning and from all corners of the academic curriculum. Through this annual conference, NCUR creates a unique environment for the celebration and promotion of undergraduate student achievement, provides models of exemplary research and scholarship, and helps to improve the state of undergraduate education.

Wells College promises a relevant liberal arts and sciences education. Intellectually challenging. Reinterpreted for today. Classroom teaching combined with hands-on learning. Wells graduates enter the world prepared for successful futures.
