Kimberyln Eversman did a Research Experience for Undergraduates at the University of North Carolina- Greensboro in the summer of 2018. In this mathematical biology project, Kimber studied the western honey bee and the varroa mite parasite that infects the honey bees.
How did you find out about your research experience, and what was the process for applying?
I found out about this research experience through www.pathwaystoscience.org. This was a great website for letting me specify the topics and requirements I wanted for my REU. It led me to the UNCG website where I was able to apply to their Math Biology REU. This application consisted of getting two letters of recommendations from my professors and also writing them a cover letter.
Can you summarize your project and what your role was?
