REU 2005

Sixteen undergraduates participated in CHN’s summer 2005 REU program. The students’ research projects included: 

Jon Basl, "Environmental Restoration and Nanotechnology," entering senior year, Philosophy program (NEU), Advisor: Ronald Sandler, NEU

This research, along with continued work during the 2005-2006 academic year, produced two posters and a paper:

  • Basl, J., "Nanotechnology and Environmental Restoration," Poster Presentation at Northeastern University’s Research Expo, spring 2006.
  • Basl, J., "Nanotechnology and Environmental Restoration," Poster Presentation at the Colonial Academic Alliance Undergraduate Research Conference, James Madison University, spring 2006.
  • Basl, J., "Nanotechnology and Environmental Restoration," paper under review for a conference, entitled Exploring the Theoretical and Practical Challenges posed by Ecological Restoration, Loyola Marymount University, summer 2006.
