About

Welcome to the UCSB Undergraduate Research blog. Our student authors will be blogging about their research in order to reflect on their experiences, practice writing for the public, and share their knowledge with fellow students and the general public. The students come from a variety of disciplines and are in different stages in their university careers. Our current slate of contributors come from the Early Undergraduate Research and Knowledge Acquisition (EUREKA) program, which provides a structured research experience for UCSB students in their first and second years on campus, and the McNair Scholars program, which supports research for juniors and seniors who plan to attend graduate school. Visit Student Profiles to learn more about the student authors. Enjoy!
