I absolutely love discussing scientific literature with my lab. Reading other papers from my field really makes me feel like my research is part of this larger narrative that spans across decades and countries.

Research Advisor: Dr. Matthew Vester, History
Research has given me the opportunity to expand my horizons and get to read books that I simply wouldn't normally have time for during the school year.
Research Advisor: Dr. Rosemary Hathaway, English
I like how mutualistic it [research] is - everyone involved has something to gain! By making the decision to participate in or do research, you are stepping into something that requires you to keep your mind open. You get the chance to constantly learn, grow, and find ways to connect with others.
Research Advisor: Dr. Michael Brumage, Public Health
What I like the most about research is being able to prevent suffering through answering questions and digging deeper into some of society’s most pressing issues.

What I like most about doing research is seeing the results from our experiments. It’s satisfying seeing the results of 8+ hours doing lab work.
Research Advisor: Dr. Lisa Dilks, Sociology
The process of getting an idea, deciding to test it, and compiling enough knowledge to make it happen is absolutely enjoyable. The end result is an amazing feeling. In the end, I'd say getting a better understanding of the social world is what I love most about doing research.

The big thing I realized when doing research with my faculty mentor was that research takes time. It’s not as quick as you’d think. A lot of work goes behind the scenes and getting to be a part of that is pretty sweet!
