Kenia Sedano Garduno

Graduate Assistant, Marywood University

Participating in the Undergraduate Research forum in Harrisburg was a great opportunity to further develop my research and technical skills that I had acquired over the years as an undergraduate student. It gave me the opportunity to network and collaborate with other students that shared my interest in research. With the support of Dr. Brian Monahan, we were able to identify an issue, conduct extended research and present our findings to an audience, including Senator, John Blake.
