Undergraduate Researchers

Your time as a undergraduate student is a great time to learn more about the process of research, investigate topics you're curious about, and to develop you analytical skills. If you're interested in working with the EDGE Lab, please contact Dr. Baylis with your current major and specific research interests. Skills in statistics, data science and GIS are desirable.

We also encourage you to visit the UCSB Undergrad Research resource center to learn more about the Faculty Research Assistance Program (FRAP) and the Undergraduate Reserach & Creative Activities (URCA) grants.
