James Hill
"The Winter Research Program is such a valuable way for students like myself to increase their employment prospects. Once you get your foot in the door, one experience can easily turn into three."
Jeremy Briggs
"The skills and experience I gained from my experience are invaluable and I’d strongly encourage anyone to apply for a project, even if they are not interested in pursuing research long term."
Simona Sarmiento
"Not only have I gained a wealth of knowledge in terms of technical and analytical skills, but I have made contacts with other students studying similar majors and staff members/post doctorates."
