Student researcher Angela Conforti at work in the Penn State Biofuels Lab


Angela Conforti

Angela is a senior majoring in Life Science at Penn State Harrisburg.





Research project and interests

My research interests lie primarily in biofuels and biotechnology. The goal of my lab is to ultimately create a better biofuel crop, using plant tissue culture and molecular techniques.

What have you enjoyed most about your research experience?

I have enjoyed learning new techniques and learning how to think critically. The most enjoyable part of research to me is that quiet moment of discovery that you have after working on a project for a long time. It makes all of the hard work worth it.

What would you tell a friend who wants to get involved in research?

I would tell a friend to talk to a professor that they like and see if that professor has any current research. If the professor does, ask if you can volunteer in their lab.
