UNC Research is proud of every scientist on this campus, but we are especially excited to promote our female researchers in 2016 with our new Women in Science Wednesday (#WSW) series. Each week this year, we will publish a short Q&A feature on one of them — whether she is an undergrad, PhD candidate, or full professor.
For February, we’d like to highlight undergraduate researcher Francesca Peay, a junior majoring in environmental studies with a minor in marine sciences. She works in the Coastal Environmental Change Lab, and her research looks at how dune height affects beachfront before and after storm events. Her advice for female researchers in her field: “Have confidence in yourself.”
