Highlight: Nigel Rothfels

Hello everyone!

For this blog I’m going to highlight a significant person that I believe the Lab Rats-Undergraduate Research LLC would benefit a lot from. Without any doubt, Nigel Rothfels, the Director of the Office Of Undergraduate Research is the person to go to when it comes to research. Most of us know Nigel as an outgoing and very positive individual with a great laugh that is impossible to not join in the fun.  But there is more to him than just a smile and since I could not have said it better than his small biography in the Office Of Undergraduate Research website, I took the liberty to post it in here for you guys…

Nigel attended college at the University of Utah, received his Ph.D. in History from Harvard University, and has held post-doctoral research fellowships from Princeton University, the Australian National University, and the National Endowment for the Humanities. He is the author of Savages and Beasts: The Birth of the Modern Zoo (2002) and the editor of a cross-disciplinary collection of essays, Representing Animals (2002). He has been at UWM since 1994, serving as Assistant Director of the Center for Twentieth (now 21st) Century Studies, and then as Director of the Edison Initiative in the College of Letters and Science, before becoming the Director of the Office of Undergraduate Research in 2007.

Nigel RothfelsNow, I know that we are all very impressed buy such career but never be afraid to get know him better since his youthful personality will make you feel right at home. To contact Nigel and get connected with the Office Of Undergraduate Research go to or email him directly at
