Undergraduate Students

Abby Vander Linden

Abby is a Biology major who is currently working on a project on convergent evolution of blade-like teeth in living and extinct mammals using CT data and complexity measures. She was awarded a College of Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Research Award and a Mary Gates Scholarship to support this research.
