Student Assists With Energy Research Project

March 05, 2010


Kristen Woods, a senior in Agribusiness Economics is spending her time assisting Dr. Silvia Secchi with research into public sector initiatives aimed at fostering production of a variety of renewable energy sources. Woods' work focuses on identifying federal and state efforts that assist alternative energy producers, and how those efforts have changed energy production.

When talking about her undergraduate research experience, Woods states, "It's a good way to increase your educational experience because if all you do is go to class, you don't get the depth you do when you do your own research ... You get that one-on-one time with your professor, and you learn a lot about a specific topic." To learn more about the project, follow the link below:
