CARIPD Student Interns

At the Center for Applied Research and Intellectual Property Development (CARIPD), we support research for a diverse group of interns with a multitude of academic backgrounds with the goal of conducting applied research.  The applied research provides tangible, big picture projects that allow for interdisciplinary collaboration.  In most cases, the research extends to fundamental research that provides conference and peer reviewed publication opportunities.

What distinguishes the CARIPD, is that research experiences are tailored to the student.  If better suited opportunities are available elsewhere on campus, Assistant Professor Legum will find the faculty adviser that will foster the students' interests.
