Welcome to the Online Proceedings for the 2010 Undergraduate Research Symposium. The Thirteenth Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium is organized by the Undergraduate Research Program, which facilitates research experiences for undergraduates in all academic disciplines. The Symposium is a chance for undergraduates to present what they have learned through their research experiences to a larger audience. It also provides a forum for students, faculty, and the community to discuss cutting edge research topics and to examine the connection between research and education. The event includes poster and presentation sessions by students from all academic disciplines and all three UW campuses, plus invited guests.

Outstanding Mentor Spotlight

Professor Hinds has been an exceptional mentor throughout the course of my research project. He helped guide my ideas to concrete form and substance in the initial phases of the project and has directed me to the resources and paths of thought that have taken my research to new levels in new directions. However, Professor Hinds also respects my academic abilities and has not only allowed me to take my project in the directions I chose, but has encouraged the developments I have made, which is a significant and too often overlooked aspect of mentorship. He is not only highly professional and a respected expert in his field, he is enthusiastic about my project and progress, and has always been available and willing to help me whenever I needed it. In my opinion, there is no mentor more deserving of such an award.
