2023 Undergraduate Research Symposium

Welcome to the Online Proceedings for the 2023 UW Undergraduate Research Symposium. The 26th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium will take place on the UW Seattle campus on Friday, May 19, 2023 with presentations in Mary Gates Hall, Meany Hall Studio Theatre, and Allen Library Research Commons.

The Undergraduate Research Symposium is organized by the Undergraduate Research Program, which facilitates research experiences for undergraduates in all academic disciplines. The Symposium is an opportunity 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, visual arts and design, performing arts, and oral presentations by students from all academic disciplines and all three UW campuses, plus invited student presenters from peer institutions.
