Undergraduate Research Directory

The Undergraduate Research office is now accepting entries for the 2020-2021 UC San Diego Undergraduate Research Directory.

This directory will showcase undergraduate research programs, highlight students' research achievements, spotlight select students, and list undergraduate students who conducted research at UC San Diego this past year. This will be a colorful and visually engaging document celebrating undergraduate research at UC San Diego. See last year's directory below. The deadline to be included is October 15, 2021. Please revisit the submission form as needed to update us on your new programs, projects, awards, publications, etc. If you have any questions about the submission form or the directory, please contact Dr. Marie Sheneman at


2019 - 2020

For curious, creative, conscientious, and ambitious students, participating in structured co-curricular research programs is challenging enough. Anyone who has completed a research program has met the demands of finding a mentor and then likely being an accountable member of a research team, showing up, being quick (in action and in thought), sharing ideas, hitting roadblocks, and moving forward.

The effort comes with potentially life-changing payoffs. In addition to achieving specific results, dedicated researchers open doors for themselves to pursue their interests in graduate or professional schools or through postbaccalaureate fellowships at renowned national and international institutions, or gaining leadership positions in industry or government.

This year our students faced new challenges, from being denied access to their physical workspaces, to digital dilemmas, and, for too many of them, housing and food insecurities.

But these students persevered; they demonstrated resilience, persistence, and a willingness to reach out for assistance. This Directory honors their admirable devotion to scholarship, their commitment to their mentors and research partners, dedication to their families and communities, and unconquerable belief in learning.

"In time, the circumstances under which they produced the results celebrated here will be less important than the remarkable work itself."

-Dr. David Artis, Dean of Undergraduate Research Advancement


Undergraduate Research Directory

The 2019–2020 undergraduate research directory reflects our best knowledge of UC San Diego undergraduates participating in mentored research between Summer 2019 and Summer 2020. The Directory is a resource for all members of our community to share and acknowledge the accomplishments of students and mentors over the last year. We hope you find it useful and inspiring!
