University Hosts Research Students from Mexico

July 13, 2009

Ten undergraduates from Mexico are conducting research at UT Dallas this summer.

The participants in the UT Dallas-Mexico Summer Research Program, all of whom hope one day to pursue doctoral degrees in science and engineering, have been assigned faculty mentors and given research projects to complement their individual career interests.

The nine-week program is organized by the Office of Graduate Studies and the Center for U.S.-Mexico Studies at UT Dallas.

The participants are required to write a progress report and give a public final presentation of their research results at the end of the month.

The program is made possible by a collaboration with the Eugene McDermott Scholars Program.

The UT Dallas faculty mentors are: Robert Wallace (electrical engineering), Diandra L. Leslie-Pelecky (physics), Yan Cao (mathematics), Stephen Spiro (biology), Steven Nielsen (chemistry), Anvar Zakhidov (nanotechnology), Gerald Burnham (electrical engineering), Gregg Dieckman (chemistry), Nasser Kehtarnavaz (electrical engineering), Eric Vogel (electrical engineering), Kim Jiyoung (electrical engineering), Manuel Quevedo (material sciences), and Thomas Lambert (English and cultural program).
