2022 Undergraduate Research Symposium

Welcome to the Online Proceedings for the 2022 UW Undergraduate Research Symposium. This year is the Twenty-Fifth Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium and provides both in-person and virtual presentations on Friday, May 20, 2022 in Mary Gates Hall, Odegaard Undergraduate Library, and online via zoom. All presentations take place on Friday, May 20, and will happen in real time, Pacific Daylight Time. Sessions will not be available for viewing later.

The 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, oral, and virtual lightning talk presentation sessions by students from all academic disciplines and all three UW campuses, plus invited student presenters from peer institutions.
