Over 200 undergraduates from across Georgia Tech participated in the 10th Annual Undergraduate Research Spring Symposium on Wednesday, April 22nd.

Held annually, the Research Symposium provides undergraduate researchers with the opportunity to share their research with other students and faculty from all over campus and to gain valuable skills and experience in presenting original work. Prizes are awarded to the top poster and oral presentation from each college. The symposium is sponsored by GT's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP). 

At this year's symposium, Nunn School graduating senior Ms. Shaudie Fassih received the award for the best oral presentation from the Ivan Allen College. Fassih presented her independent research on "Emerging Threat of ISIS:  Insurgency Strategies." Mentored by Assistant Professor Margaret E. Kosal, Ms. Fassih investigated four factors (motivation, strategy, geography, and capability) in order to assess the threat of ISIS. She also found that the ability of ISIS to accumulate supporters from across the globe and distribute power similar to a state government illustrates the evolution of insurgencies to the international community.

Nunn School student researchers include Presidential Undergraduate Research Award (PURA) winners, SAIC Undergraduate scholarship recipients, and students pursuing special topics research under faculty mentorship.
