Research Notes – Undergraduate Research

Research Notes are short, mostly unedited research dispatches from the Coastal Routes lab. In this episode, we talk with three undergraduates at the University of Guelph – Dayna Rachkowski, Cameron McGlade-Bouchard, and Yanik Rozon – who all worked as undergraduate research assistants in the Coastal Routes Lab over the summer of 2020. They share reflections on their experiences as undergrad researchers, their research projects, life in a social science lab, and tips for anyone interest in research at the undergrad level.
