CAVS Undergraduate Students Participate in Research Symposium
August 2, 2013
On August 1st, the 2013 Undergraduate Research Symposium which is hosted by the Shackouls
Honors College was held on the Mississippi State University campus. The event is in
collaboration with National Science Foundation-funded undergraduate research programs.
Two CAVS summer undergraduates Jeffrey Jinkerson and Jonathan Miller presented their posters
at the symposium. Jinkerson's poster was titled Development of Multimodal Driving
Environments for Pedestrian Safety Infrastructure Validity Testing while Miller's was
BioInspired Design: Using Bovid Horns to Design the Next Generation Football Helmets. Miller
placed third in the Physical Sciences and Engineering Category.
The symposium is an opportunity to showcase faculty-guided student research efforts from diverse
departments, colleges and research centers across campus. Many undergraduates participate in
faculty-guided research throughout the year at Mississippi State. The university is fortunate
to have many faculty that involve undergraduates in research and several federally-funded
research experiences for undergraduates programs. All undergraduates who are involved in
faculty-guided research during the academic year are invited and encouraged to participate in
the event through poster presentation, short talk or performance.
