Presenter: Dr. Robert W. Fletcher, Ph.D.  
In this presentation Dr. Fletcher presents some of his latest research work along with a review of past research projects. These projects have utilized mostly undergraduate research assistants. Most major universities use graduate students for such work, but Dr. Fletcher has found undergraduates can be productive research assistants. Here he reviews some of the benefits and challenges of such efforts. Dr. Fletcher holds a PhD and MS in Chemical Engineering from The University of Michigan, and Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Washington (Seattle).

All Third Thursday Seminal Series seminars are open to the LTU community and the public. They start at 1:00 PM, will be held in room E101 in the engineering building, and are sponsored by the A.
