Berry Research Students

I have been fortunate to have outstanding students work in my research lab over the years. A research experience is extremely beneficial in making coursework come to life and helping one clarify future career goals.

Students enjoy working in the safe, new environment of the recently constructed $33 million dollar Swenson Science Building. The lab consists of four fume hoods, mulitple bench tops, desks for students, and state of the art research equipment. If you are interested in a position in lab, please contact Dr. Berry for information on openings.
