UT recently wrapped up the 25th edition of its annual Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement (EURēCA) awards, which recognize research, work, and creativity of students from across campus.
CBE is thrilled to announce senior Kelsey Uselton, mentored by Senior Research Associate Gabriel Goenaga, was recognized with an OURF Bronze Award and received second place in the research category for her project titled, “Parameter Optimization for the Performance of a Reversible Fuel Cell.” Senior Jason Cornelio was on a team that received an Award of Excellence for their project titled, “Development of Spectroelectrochemistry for Detection of Neurotransmitters.”
In addition, Goenaga won a Faculty Research Mentor Award.
Although, like many things, the conference had to once again be presented virtually, the experience and reward for those participating was a bonus for everyone involved.
“The students that presented at EURēCA this year likely did much of their research work amidst COVID-related restrictions and presented their research in an unfamiliar online environment,” said Associate Professor and Director of the college’s Cook Grand Challenge Honors Program Kevin Kit. “They are to be commended for their dedication to communicating the results of their work.”
