Undergraduate Students

We typically have a cohort of ~10 undergraduate students in our research group.  Our undergraduate researchers range from freshmen just starting out to seniors completing their thesis research for graduation from the Honors College at the University of Arkansas.  We also host several students each summer through campus REU programs and through ongoing funded research in the Greenlee group.  Undergraduate researchers are a vital part of our research group, helping graduate students, working on teams, pursuing their own research, and learning skills for their futures in science and engineering.

Current Students: Tobias Dwyer, Melanie Justus, Ethan Phan, Kevin Le, Alexander Ditto, Derek Hess, Patricia Means, Eric Beitle, Zakary Ford, and Zackary Nelson.
