The Wake Forest News Service recently ran a series of profiles of the 2014 WFU graduates. Jennifer Miller, a Biology major, was featured focusing on her journey as a student, study abroad, and research she did both locally and in South America.
“During my junior year, I conducted research with Professor Clifford Zeyl’s biology group to study evolution experiments using yeast. Shortly after this, I developed a passion for conservation biology and began research with Professor Miles Silman’s lab during my senior year. Our work focused on how to improve toxic soil conditions that result from illegal gold mining in Peru. I learned how to weld and cut metal to design a biomass reactor to make biochar.”
