Research Mentor: 
Dr. Renee McPherson, Aparna Bamzai
Describe your undergraduate research or creative project: 
In collaboration with the South Central Climate Science Center and the Department of Geography and Environmental Sustainability I was conducting a research study titled “Climate Change in the Mind of a College Student - A Survey of Climate Change Perceptions at OU”.
Explain what you learned or give advice to fellow students: 
I learned how OU students are generally more concerned about climate change than the general US adult population. I also learned that religiousness of political affiliation does have an effect on a student's view on climate change.
Published Work: 
I am currently finishing a manuscript that I will submit to the journal Climatic Change.
