Faculty Research Projects

The following descriptions provide examples of the types of projects that will be offered, covering the full range of research areas of the faculty participants. Lists of relevant publications can be found by following the links to the individual faculty home pages.

Although the research projects are listed under individual faculty, many of these activities are highly collaborative and involve both academic and industrial colleagues. CREATE REU students will be integral members of active research groups and will thus have opportunities to interact with faculty, post-docs, graduate students, and industrial colleagues (in addition to other undergraduates) during their summer research experiences.
