Horvath was one of three UConn students attending this summer's Universitas 21 Undergraduate Research Conference at Fudan University in Shanghai, China. The conference, on the theme ‘Share Your Inspiration,’ brought together a diverse group of young researchers from U21 institutions around the world and gave them the opportunity to share their passion for a subject with others from different disciplines.
