Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate students are allowed to work in the lab to fulfill their requirements for Senior Research and/or Honors Research. To learn about the research project they can get involved in please click here. Several Undergraduate Students have gone on and defended their Honor’s Research Thesis and published research articles in international journals as first author as well as co-authors. In addition to Undergraduate students, Dr. Velu has mentored highly motivated high school students as well. The following is a list of current and former undergraduate and high school students who have worked in Dr. Velu’s lab.
