Two Cal State Fullerton students came home second place winners following the recent 21st annual California State University Student Research Competition at CSU Dominguez Hills.

Nine Titans recently participated in the annual contest, which was established to showcase the high caliber of research conducted by CSU undergraduate and graduate students. Student participants from all 23 CSU universities made oral presentations before juries of professional experts from major corporations, foundations, public agencies, colleges and universities in California.

Sumitpal Singh, a master’s student in chemistry and Kenneth Vincent, a political science student were second-place winners. Singh was runner-up in the Physical and Mathematical Sciences category with his research presentation on “Kinetics Study of OH Radical Reactions With Various Volatile Organic Compounds Using Relative Rate/Discharge Fast Flow/Mass Spectrometry Technique at 240-340K.”
Vincent was the runner-up in the Business, Economics and Public Administration category and presented his research about “Public-Private Partnership in Surface Transportation.”

Other students who made presentations are:

  • Jennifer Bradley, English, “My Wit Untrain’d: The Construction and Reconstruction of Joan la Pucelle in 1 Henry VI;”
  • Rose Buckelew, sociology and liberal studies, “Structural Assimilation of Mexican-Americans in Santa Ana, California;”

  • Jessica Lundquist, psychology, “Modeling the Impact of Past Relationship Betrayal on Trust in Current Relationships;” 
  • Michael  Martinez, mathematics, “When the Zero-Divisors Form an Ideal, Based on the Zero-Divisor Graph;”  
  • Marcella Olave, biology, “A Phytochrome-like Protein Regulates the Expression of the Red Light Induced RNA-binding Proteins in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii;” and,
