My name is Cassandra, I am a pre-nursing sophomore. I am very familiar with research because of previous AP classes I took in high school. My time at UTA has also taught me valuable research skills.

Hi, I'm Amanda! I'm a junior majoring in Mathematics with a Statistics focus and a minor in Sociology. I've had a lot of experience writing English and History papers in high school, and I've also used the library databases to research for my Sociology courses. That combined with my training as a research coach have made me very familiar with the research process. If you ever need research help, feel free to stop by the second floor and I'll be glad to help you. Happy researching! (1/2020)



Hello! My name is Austin Pickell. I’m a sophomore studying towards a major in Electrical Engineering. I first started researching in high school, where I wrote multiple argumentative and informative papers for my AP English classes, with topics ranging from biology to history. Starting college, I wrote even more argumentative papers for my last English class. I’m familiar with both MLA and APA formats.  If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I’m available in the Central Library on the 2nd floor. Feel free to stop by! (3/2019)



My name is Jasmine, I'm a junior pursuing a major in Nursing. I'm an enthusiastic person happily willing to assist students in any way. My experience with research papers comes from my rigorous AP and IB courses in high school where research papers were a regular occurrence. From that experience, I know where things may become difficult, when you have no idea where to locate articles, how to correctly cite a paper, when you're not even sure where to begin finding a topic, and even just knowing where to find different types of sources. If you're ever stuck, the other research coaches and I would love to help, just come visit us in the Academic Plaza right in front of the elevators!  (3/2019)



Hi, my name is Adam Perez and I am a freshman planning to major in Civil Engineering. I love talking and meeting new people, so don't be shy to ask for help. In high school I became familiar with the research process by working on projects such as constructing a down scaled Roman Aqueduct, making an underwater ROV for the Grand Prairie Fire Department, building a functioning AM/FM Radio, and creating a plat of Dubiski Career High School. If you're in need of help or have any questions, I'll be on the 2nd floor of the central library.  :)



Hey everyone! My name is Rishikesh Joshi, I'm a grad student studying computer engineering here at UTA. Research has always intrigued me and made me curious about the subject, my first research paper during my undergraduate studies was about digital wallets in general and it had a lot of errors at first, so I understand how frustrating it could be to figure out the intricacies of a research paper. If you do happen to pass through the second floor at the central library, we can always meet up and discuss the details of the papers or anything else that you might have on your mind. Hoping to see you soon! :)   (2/2019)
