The work going on in one Cornell College science lab takes a steady hand.
“This kind of research is very atypical for undergraduates,” Professor Jai Shanata said. “It is very much more-so the kind of research that’s done by graduate students or post-docs who do it for months or years, non-stop.”
Will Eastham ’18, Jennifer Aguayo ’18, and Aidan Litt ’19 are taking on the challenge. They’re working with Professor Shanata for the Cornell Summer Research Institute. Professor Shanata pushed for these early chemistry research opportunities, designing guidelines for the students to ensure their success and to prepare them for the future.
