Undergraduate Researchers 2011-2012
I am a senior currently working on a BS degree in Ecology and Evolution, a BA degree in French Language and Literature, and a Chemistry minor. I started working in Dr. Kalisz’s lab earlier last year and so far it’s been great! After graduation I plan on taking some time off to volunteer either with the Peace Corps or Teach for America before continuing on with my education in grad school. In my spare time I like to hike, bike, and travel to new places.
I am currently a sophomore and I hope to major in the Biological Sciences. I joined Dr. Kalisz and Dr. Morehouse’s labs during the fall semester of my freshman year through First Experiences in Research. I’m currently attempting to characterize floral coloration and patterning in the California native wildflower, Collinsia heterophylla. The project also involves modeling the visual responses of common bee pollinators with regards to floral traits. After graduation, I hope to enroll in medical school to further my medical education!
I am a Biological Sciences and Environmental Studies double major with minors in Chemistry and Spanish. This fall 2012 semester is my first experience doing research in the Kalisz lab. After graduation, I hope to attend graduate school for ecology. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, reading, swimming, practicing karate, and hanging out with my friends.
I am a Biological Sciences major with a minor in chemistry. I began working in the Kalisz lab in the spring semester of 2011 after volunteering for a few weeks in the fall semester of 2010. After graduation I plan on going to medical school and becoming a dermatologist although I am still keeping my options open.
I am currently pursuing a Biological Sciences B.S., chemistry minor, and a certificate in American Sign Language. I began in the Kalisz lab spring semester of 2011. In addition to the Trillium Trail study, I have worked with Dr. Rachel Spigler on her C.verna autoplast project, Nathan Bouwer on his study of Maianthemum and Polygonatum, and most recently, I have been working with various Collinsia species in hopes developing a germination protocol for the genus. I enjoy knitting and playing with puppies! After graduation I would like to further my education in medical school studying to become a physiatrist (Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.)
I am a senior at Pitt, and am currently pursuing a BS in Biology with a minor in chemistry. After taking a class with Dr. Kalisz, I'm thrilled to be working with her and everyone else in the Kalisz lab while learning so much at the same time! After graduation, I plan on taking two years to volunteer with Teach for America before I return to school to pursue a Masters degree. In my spare time I enjoy dancing, hiking, being outdoors and trying new things while I still can!
I am a sophomore majoring in Biological Sciences with an English Literature minor, currently on a Pre-Medicine track. This fall 2012 semester will be my first working in the Kalisz lab. I plan on also volunteering at a hospital this semester and joining a running club. After graduation I hope to continue to medical school, however, I would like to keep my options open as I learn and become interested in new topics and fields of study.
I am a senior with a major in Biological Sciences and a minor in Chemistry. This is my first time working in Dr. Kalisz’s lab, and I am excited to see what this semester and this summer working on the Trillium Trail brings! I have been accepted to veterinary school, but I am deferring for a year or two to either join the Peace Corps or to work with my husband as worship leaders. I enjoy playing music in my band, biking, hiking, and volunteering as a voice teacher for middle school students!
I am a sophomore currently pursuing a Biological Sciences B.S., Chemistry minor, and a Certificate in Public and Professional Writing. I began working in the Kalisz lab in the spring of 2012. After graduation I plan on starting a career in research and then furthering my education by attending grad school.
