The combination of Stonehill’s and the University of Notre Dame’s renowned undergraduate research opportunities means students will have far more in-the-field research experience to support their integrated learning at both schools.
S.U.R.E. is an opportunity for students who have completed their first year at Stonehill to perform significant, publishable, full-time research under the guidance of and in collaboration with an experienced faculty researcher.
- Chemical Engineering major Hannah Fitch ’15 and Mechanical Engineering major Melissa Drury ’15 worked with Cheryl Schnitzer, associate professor of Chemistry, on artificial photosynthesis. This research will focus on the light-harvesting antenna complex (LH2) system of photosynthesis and the dynamics of energy transfer among components of the complex.
Research at the University of Notre Dame
In addition to research at Stonehill, the University of Notre Dame offers undergraduate opportunities for cutting-edge research in a variety of facilities across campus, from designing micro air vehicles to studying the degradation of organic contaminants in groundwater.
