Happy Juneteenth #UIC!
The Office of Undergraduate Research is excited to share our second book recommendation, The South Side: A Portrait of Chicago and American Segregation, by Natalie Y. Moore. This book is a combination of a memoir and investigative research where Moore discusses housing policies rooted in systemic racism that created the segregation we see in Chicago today. Highly recommend to anyone who is from Chicago, new to Chicago and/or interested in research outside of STEM. #undergradresearch

Happy Wednesday #UIC! Our second to last student research spotlight is on... Nada Marei! Nada is a junior majoring in biochemistry with a French minor and is on the pre-dental track. 🦷
β€œThis is a picture of me in the research lab that I am in at the College of Dentistry at UIC over at West Campus. This is Dr. Bedran-Russo's reasearch lab in the Restorative Dentistry Department which focuses on regenrative science, mechanical, and biochemical properties of teeth and also the interface between the biomaterial and the tooth structure. I found this research opportunity through my faculty fellow for the Honors College. I reached out to him for advice and he guided me to the College of Dentistry website where I contacted researchers that I found their lab interesting to me, but my main goal from the very first look through the website was Dr. Russo's lab. I thankfully was able to be a part of her amazing team! I learned a lot from this research lab this year, I have made so many great memories, made lots of new connections, and gained so much good experience. I am forever grateful for my fellow and the Honors College at UIC!” #UICResearch #undergradresearch #UICOUResearch

Hi #UIC! It’s a beautiful day to continue with our student spotlight! β˜€οΈ
Meet Ayoko Djisseglo, a senior majoring in English with a Professional Writing concentration.
β€œMy independent research study with Professor Charitianne Williams involves transcribing Writing Center tutoring session audios, which will be analyzed to describe how WC tutors maintain a collaborative space during in-person sessions. I discovered this opportunity when Professor Williams sent out an email looking for a research assistant. I am participating in this research because as a WC staff tutor, I want to continue to evolve my understanding of tutoring theories and practices and contribute to its study.”

Our third #UIC student research spotlight is on... Matthew Braniff!
Matthew is a junior majoring in computer engineering. πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’»He is researching with Wenjing Rao.
β€œI found this opportunity by approaching Wenjing while she was my professor in computer architecture. I found myself engaging mostly in that class and it inspired me to pursue my interests in hardware. I found out her research is related to hardware security, specifically Physically Unclonable Function (PUF): which ended up being a perfect fit for me!”

Our #UIC student research spotlight continues with...Alexandra Sanchez!
She is a junior majoring in mathematics.
β€œI am working on finding the genes that pattern the embryo on the wasp Nasonia in order to understand embryogenesis. I work at the lab of Jeremy Lynch and I am participating on this research because we have found novel results and want to continue doing research on this in order to have better results. I found this research opportunity helpful for my career and my personal life since I have learned many different things. I am thankful to be participating on this program and for the different opportunities UIC has provided.”
