Alumni kudos!

Kudos to…  Luciana Aenasoaie (MSP08) serves as Associate Director of Research Mentor and Training at the University of Michigan’s Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program. She teaches a course titled “Let’s Talk Research: Intro to Scholarly Communication,” where undergraduate researchers explore ways to communicate their inquiry to their communities and the world. Her dream has been to expand students’ imagination in this regard, and she has sought out partnerships with the UM Natural History Museum and the MLibrary to give students the venue in which they can create exhibits about their research. This past year, during the Museum’s grand opening, seven of her students showcased their work in the Student Showcase exhibit which will remain on display for an entire year. Luciana is now working with the MLibrary for next year’s exhibit and to expand the opportunity to students working outside of STEM.
