McNair Program jumpstarts undergraduate student’s research

When Liliana Lule started college, she didn’t know she wanted to conduct her own research. Now, the UW–Madison senior is preparing to present on her latest project during Research in the Rotunda at the Wisconsin State Capitol before continuing her research as a graduate student.

Lule, who is a scholar in the Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program, will be among the UW System students presenting on Wednesday, April 11 at Research in the Rotunda, the annual showcase of outstanding undergraduate researchers.
