Dear Readers,The UM Undergraduate Research Journal is proud to present the Fall 2010 Issue, which represents theseventh consecutive year that we have successfully published the work of outstanding undergraduate
student researchers. UMURJ aims to present research papers that relect the rigorous academic pursuit 
of inquiry and understanding across all disciplines. UMURJ continues to pursue its unique mission as theonly entirely student-run organization dedicated to promoting the communication and exchange of ideasby showcasing undergraduate academic research of such breadth and depth.This past year our editorial staff has worked hard to improve the quality of the journal. We strove toensure that each research article published in this issue represents work that is interesting, relevant,novel, methodically sound, and well written. In addition to the research papers submitted by the UM Un-dergraduates, our publication contains faculty interviews conducted by our staff members on pertinent topics in research and society.For this issue, we have continued to solicit the assistance of UM faculty members, many of whom are
considered leading experts in their respective ields, to guide the peer-review process within UMURJ. We
would like to extend a special thanks to the faculty members who so generously contributed their timeand insight this year.We dedicate this journal to the future endeavors of our fellow undergraduates. We hope that this volumewill inspire future undergraduates, as it has inspired us, to ask new questions, seek new answers, anddevelop a passion of knowledge and its pursuit.On behalf of the entire 2009 and 2010 UMURJ Editorial and Production staff, we thank you for taking thetime to read the Fall 2010 issue. It is only with your readership and the immeasurable support we receivefrom the UM community that empowers us to produce and distribute the journals.We hope that you enjoy reading about the phenomenal work that has been produced by the undergradu-ate researchers who are published in this issue of UMURJ and will join us in celebrating their achieve-ments.Sincerely,Bhargavi Sampath and Yezi Peng
