Two Cameron University students were recognized for the quality of their research during the recent annual technical meeting of the Oklahoma Academy of Science. Jared Stokes received the award for Zoology – Outstanding Oral Presentation, and Jeein Yoon received the award for Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science – Outstanding Oral Presentation.

“Undergraduate research is a vital part of Cameron’s academic offerings,” says Dr. Terry Conley, Dean, School of Science and Technology. “Our students and their faculty mentors commit much time and great effort to academic research. This prestigious recognition by the Oklahoma Academy of Science is well-deserved.”

Stokes, Poteau, is a senior majoring in organismal biology.  His research project, “Effects of Habitat Variables on Home Range Size of Scissor-tailed Flycatchers,” was co-authored by CU alumni Jessica Roy and Diane Roeder and Dr. Mike Husak, Associate Professor, Department of Biological Sciences, who served as a mentor to Stokes.

Yoon, Lawton, is a junior majoring in cellular and molecular biology with a minor in mathematics. Her research focused on “Travelling Waves Solutions of Infectious Diseases Model.” She was mentored by Dr. Narayan Thapa, Chair, Department of Mathematical Sciences.
