UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANTS
My undergraduate research assistants are some of the most important members of the Illinois Junior Chefs Research Team!
They work diligently to collect and analyze data, build relationships with program sites and participants, and present our findings at national conferences and through published manuscripts.
In 2017, Ruyu Liu and Emilie Emberton were awarded the highly competitive University of Illinois Undergraduate Research Support Grant - funding which allowed us to collect novel data on participants' hands-on cooking skills.
Congratulations Ruyu and Emilie!
