Hi! I'm a sophomore majoring in Music Therapy and minoring in Neuroscience. I have been a research assistant with Dr. Silverman, the Director of the Music Therapy program on campus, and would like to learn all that it has to offer. On campus, I'm the public relations officer for MTSA(Music Therapy Student Association) and am one of the founding members of UMN's Premier South Asian Fusion Acapella team - Minnesota Fitoor! In my free time, I enjoy playing around with my guitar, watching netflix, singing, and spending time with my family and friends. I look forward to meeting you and assisting you with your research!

Hi! I'm an international student from Malaysia. I believe the University has the resources to help you achieve whatever your goals are which is why I am so excited for the opportunity to contribute as a Peer Research Consultant. I've taken a couple research writing classes and love seeing how fellow students piece research facts together to build their arguments and become experts on their papers over the semester. I myself have had a PRC direct me to key articles and other University faculty in answering my research questions. My personal interests are Chinese culture and the Chinese language. If you need any assistance, please visit a Peer Research Consultant and I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

"Hi, I am a sophomore studying Astrophysics and/or Physics. This past summer I engaged in research at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse, and it was such a valuable experience. I appreciate every step of the research process, and I'm excited for my second semester as a PRC. It gives me the opportunity to be a resource to others and to be involved in a wide variety of research, from the arts and humanities to the sciences. When I'm not in class or assisting others as a PRC, I enjoy watching movies, eating, and dancing. Feel free to schedule an appointment or visit during drop-in hours -- I'd be happy to help!

Hello there! I am currently a junior pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics with intended minors in Mathematics, Statistics, and Management. I thoroughly enjoy engaging myself in quantitative and analytical research in this field of choice. I aspire to have a career that will help me hone my avid interest in financial economics. I am currently a research assistant at the U, and it has been one of my most cherished experiences. I absolutely love everything that a research experience entails—brainstorming, topic proposals, source materials, thesis statements, citations, and so on. Apart from research, I love to read books. Psychological thrillers, detective novels, and murder mysteries are my favorite genres. I also love reading esoteric poetry. My stress busters are drawing, listening to music, and watching movies. I look forward to sharing my experiences with you and assisting you in your research when you drop me a visit. Looking forward to an engaging semester!
