## Research Experience For Undergraduates

For the past few summer at UConn, I have had the privilege of working as a mentor alongside Iddo Ben-Ari for the participants of the Markov Chains REU at UConn. Check out their projects!

I organized the REU Virtual Conference in 2021. We had participants from REUs from (in no particular order) Amherst College, UMass Amherst, Tufts University, Yale University. and UConn.
