The Delaware Advanced Research Workforce and Innovation Network (DARWIN) held its annual computing symposium virtually this year through the University of Delaware’s Data Science Institute on February 12, 2021. Two of Wesley’s Business Administration seniors presented work on an ongoing research project they are currently engaged in with mentors, Dr. Kathleen Curran, Wesley Professor of Biology, and Dr. Yu Tian, Wesley Professor of Business Administration. Wesley senior, Jarrett Wallace, presented a poster entitled “Analysis of Variance in Relation to BMI and Daily Habits”. Wallace is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration simultaneously with a Master’s degree in Business Administration with plans to graduate from Wesley this May (2021).
Similarly, Wesley senior, Mikaela Miesbauer, presented a poster entitled “Small Liberal Arts College Students and Eating Habits: No Impact on Student BMI”. Miesbauer plans to graduate from Wesley this summer (June 2021) with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration/Informatics. Upon conclusion of the symposium, Miesbauer received “Best Poster Award” for her presentation.
While the annual symposium is funded through a NSF award, Miesbauer and Wallace’s projects are funded through a Mentored Course-Embedded Undergraduate Research Experience (MCURE) award through the DE-INBRE (IDeA Network for Biomedical Research Excellence) program of the NIH-NIGMS (P20 GM103446).
