Sanjana Choudhary, junior from University of Texas Arlington join our group end of May to work for 10 weeks as Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) fellow.
Sanjana is majoring Mechanical Engineering. Her research project at NDSU relates to study on effect of chemical structure of biobased vinyl monomers on properties of latexes and latex polymer films synthesized from fully renewable monomer feed. At NDSU, Sanjana works under supervision of Zoriana Demchuk.
SURE program is operated by Coatings and Polymeric Materials Department to provide undergraduate students (usually juniors and seniors) the opportunity to experience a research environment and to encourage them to pursue a higher degree. Coatings and Polymeric Materials offers this program each year. The program serves in educating the next generation of specialists in the field of polymers and coatings, as many students who attend this program go on to graduate school at NDSU, in this department.
