Jeff Erger's Research Page

This research page lists research projects that might be of interest to students. It also indicates professional presentations and publications that have come from these projects. If you are a current UWEC student and want to join in researching one of these topics, or a topic of your own, please get in touch with me. Many opportunities exist to not only get involved with research, but to receive grants to pay for projects. (YES, that can include money for your time.)
