Every summer, you can find student researchers hard at work on campus. One group of summer student researchers, led by Dr. Gary Morris, study ozone air quality and even launch weather balloons from right here on the Hilltop. The summer project goes beyond launching weather balloons and helps launch careers. In the 15 years since the project launched on campus, more than 125 undergraduate students have been involved. Of those students, at least 19 have earned Ph.D.’s, 3 have earned M.D.s, and 15 have earned at least a M.S. degree.
Read our interview below with Dr. Gary Morris for more about the research and unexpected findings.
