Dean’s Research Scholars Program

I, Katie Wozniak, have been selected to serve as a Dean’s Research Scholar for the College of Natural Science here at MSU for the 2015-2016 school year. The Dean’s scholars are a group of undergraduate students who do research in math and science and are able to effectively communicate their research to a broad range of alumni. Scholars travel to speaking engagements and attend special events where they interact one-on-one with alumni of Michigan State University.

Each of the scholars have a biography and Q&A posted online. They also maintain a blog about their experiences speaking to alumni. Since I am new to the program, the College of Natural Science’s photographer, Harley Seeley, came to take pictures of me in our lab’s greenhouse! ¬†Harley brought his lighting, ¬†computer, and a top of the line camera along with him. After exploring different poses that took into account the lighting, he began shooting. Harley was able to capture ~60 unique images.

The photos will be reviewed and sent to me for my critiques soon. I will be sure to post a link to my Dean’s Research Scholar webpage as soon as it is available!
