Student Researchers share their work

From food security issues in Thailand to anaerobic waste digesters on Vermont farms, with several stops in between, the seven presenters in one of the 2017 Student Research Conference’s “Lightning Talks” sessions offered a high-speed glimpse (five minutes max) of the research enterprise and student experience at UVM.

Thanking the Lightning Talk presenters, vice president for research Richard Galbraith said, “It is inconceivable to me that as a student I could do what you have done with the poise and passion you’ve shown us this morning.”

And so it went throughout the fourth floor of the Davis Center on April 27—student passion for research and poise in presentation on full display. More than 400 undergraduates and grad students participated in this spring’s conference, the largest in the eleven-year history of the event.
