CS Undergraduate Students Present their Research

May 15, 2023

The Department of Computer Science had four of our undergraduate students participate in the ISU 17th Annual Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression. Research is an important foundation of quality education at all levels of education, and research symposiums such as this are a great way to increase communication skills and showcase research. The students, with their Computer Science faculty mentors, are:

  • Maxim Popov (mentored by Ying Cai), presented “Sign-Changing Simplex for Intersection-tree Construction”
  • Ranai Srivastov (mentored by Tichakorn Wongpiromsarn), presented “Duckietown as an experimental validation platform”
  • Jesse Slater (mentored by James Lathrop), presented “Computer Assisted Proofs and Their Application to Chemical Reaction Networks”
  • Hilda Hashemi (mentored by Myra Cohen), presented “Exploring the Impact of Configurability in Machine Learning Algorithms”
  • Noah Shepardson (data science) and Caleb Sanchez (Software Engineering) (both mentored by Wallapak Tavanapong) presented, “Computer vision using deep learning for image analysis”

The Computer Science session was held the morning of April 20th, from 9:00-10:30, and moderated by Computer Science Assistant Teaching Professor Abraham Aldaco. Overall, 188 ISU undergraduate students presented 142 research projects. The annual symposium was held in the Student Innovation Center and was open to the ISU community, ISU alumni, parents, prospective students, and the general public.
