Project Description

Rachel Sagers

College of Science


Rachel Sagers is studying Human Biology and Public Health with an environmental emphasis. She got involved in research because she finds it empowering to be able to find research projects that are of interest to her. Sagers dedicated her last research project to saving birds on campus. Birds will collide with windows and other glass or reflective surfaces on campus. This became a big issue as birds kept getting killed by the collisions. “I like being able to make an actual difference,” Sagers said. “Especially in my current project with birds, it’s nice to have a project where you can actually see the payoff.”
