Zotero is a reference management system. It serves as a way for us to store journal articles and other things of note across the lab even when using different computers. You can also highlight or make notes on articles that you wish to as you read them. Additionally, it serves as a handy tool when you are writing up results - it can actually input your citations/bibliographies automatically! No more worries about having to wonder if you did APA formatting correctly. This is especially helpful as you move further on in your graduate career (especially if you have to write research publications, a thesis, or a dissertation). Get used to this now! It also has nice plugins for your internet browser (so you can save an article) and for word processing systems (so you can cite things when you are typing them).
We also have a canvas page that hosts primarily didactic information (i.e., some videos that I have made for students).
This is how we will host surveys. Login information and design is available as needed.
Our lab is found in MOLN315E. The sharepoint has information on how to access this space. I encourage you to use the space if you wish to study. However, if someone is doing lab-related work in the space, and needs solitude (i.e., they are doing an interview), please refrain from using the lab.
Funding for this lab comes from:
- Jordan’s startup funds
- UWP College of Natural and Health Sciences
The Undergraduate Research Assistanship Program (URAP) program provides modest stipends for conducting research with a professor. Amounts include $500 for either the fall or spring semester, and a $2000 stipend for the summer. Usually, it is best for students to already be involved in the lab to apply for this funding, as it involves a substantial process. If you are interested in applying for URAP, please reach out to Jordan at least 2 months before the due date.

If you join the lab with URAP funding, you will be required to submit a report of what you did during your time in the lab. I recommend you keep a journal of tasks and activities that you did during the lab to make this process easier.
