Alumnae Reflect on Undergraduate Research Experience

The Undergraduate Research Program hosted the 13th Annual Taste of Research on Wednesday, September 16 in the Carlyle Campbell Library. Twenty-two students presented during this poster session.

Many Meredith alumnae have benefitted from their experience in undergraduate research. At Meredith, 32% of students participate in undergraduate research, compared to an estimated 23% national average.

“Undergraduate research was the most amazing opportunity I had as an undergrad, and I'll be more than happy to help with anything you need at Meredith to ensure that it keeps inspiring Meredith Angels,” said Megan Amanatides, ’15.

Megan Yohpe,’12, conducted undergraduate research as a student. Her project, “Using a Mathematical Model to Analyze the Bone Remodeling Process,” helped prepare Yohpe to complete a master’s degree in mechanical engineering and for her current job with NASA.

“Undergraduate research gave me the opportunity to work one-on-one with my research advisor to develop my individual research goals and present the work through the Celebrating Student Achievement Day,” said Yohpe. “The research provided me with real-world mathematical research experience and applications while also allowing me to learning about the medical and space exploration fields.”
