The Road to Research: Rutgers–Camden Student Combines Two Passions for Multidisciplinary Research Experience

The Road to Research: Rutgers–Camden Student Combines Two Passions for Multidisciplinary Research Experience

By Ed Moorhouse The great baseball player Yogi Berra famously said, “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.” For Ashley Lewis, the saying couldn’t be more fitting. Instead of deciding between two academic paths — biology and philosophy — the Rutgers University–Camden junior from Gibbsboro chose both, and is thriving in […]
