Posted on

Jackie Dudley '24, an environmental science major with a specialization in pollution and remediation, presented her undergraduate research "The Medicinal and Culinary Uses of Chili Peppers and How to Obtain the Desired Results" at the Northeastern Student Farmer Conference at Penn State University.

Dudley's presentation was a session within a larger conference agenda, which pulled valuable information from the research done at DelVal to formulate a presentation that encompasses soil health, crop management, and several other topics. After graduation, Jackie plans on becoming an environmental educator before going to grad school for atmospheric science for research and data. Currently, Jackie is involved in several clubs and organizations on campus, including being a student rambassador, sister’s in S.T.E.M. treasurer, president of MANRRS, president of minority relations council, and a peer mentor!

"Running a discussion based conversation was a skill that I’ve never done before and hearing the opinions of attendees from several different backgrounds was a great experience," said Dudley. "I enjoyed my experience, it was a productive conversation, and we learned from each other."

Congratulations on this major accomplishment and best of luck on your future endeavors, Jackie!
