Summer Undergraduate Research Experience
The SURE fellowship program is funded by the West Virginia Research Challenge Fund that is
administered by the WV Higher Education Policy Commission, Division of Science and Research.
My project consisted of examining fossilized soils (paleosols) from the prospective of engineering and
geologic properties in attempt to cross correlate between the two separate, but distinct, professions.
NASA Space Grant Student Fellowship
The NASA West Virginia Space Grant Consortium (WVSGC) includes five West Virginia Universities
and seven West Virginia Colleges. West Virginia University is the lead institution.
I was awarded this fellowship to further fund my independent research with fossilized soils through the
Marshall University Chapter of Sigma Xi.
