Congratulations to Olivia Lanseth, an undergraduate researcher in the Sharma Lab, for her recent acceptance to the NSF- and Intel-supported Summer Undergraduate Research in Engineering/Sciences (S.U.R.E.) program. According to their website, “SURE is a 10-week summer research program designed to attract qualified under-represented minority and women students into graduate school in the fields of engineering and science. As one of the longest running REU programs in the country, SURE has a proud legacy of helping students enter into graduate programs, especially at the Georgia Institute of Technology.” Every summer, 30-40 junior-level undergraduate students are accepted into this program to conduct research in the College of Computing, the College of Engineering, and the College of Sciences.
