Science, Mathematics Students Share Their Ongoing Research at Poster Session
On April 14, the final day of WesFest, a select group of Wesleyan students gathered in the Exley Science Center Lobby to share some of their research projects in the natural sciences and mathematics. This relatively small gathering represented only a fraction of the 150 students on campus actively engaged in natural science and mathematics research.

Samantha Hellberg ’16 (and Jeremy Levit ’15) presented her research titled, “Effects of Ethanol Exposure and Anxiety on Motivation for Gambling-like Cues.” Assistant Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience and Behavior Mike Robinson served as the faculty advisor.
Jack Lashner ’16 displayed his research project “A study of Vibrational Energy Transfer through a Hard Sphere Model.” His faculty advisor is Professor of Physics and Environmental Studies Brian Stewart.
Kiley Kennedy ’16, at right, exhibited her research “Dynamics of Simulated Lipid Monolayers.” Francis Starr, director of the College of Integrated Sciences, professor of physics, served as her faculty advisor.
