Graduate Students innovative work was presented at the Graduate Research Day Spring 2020

On Friday, March 6, a total of 34 Masters and Ph.D. students presented their research to their peers, professors, guest speakers and a few selected judges. Ph.D. students (with a Dissertation Proposal defended) participated in a 10 minutes oral presentation of their work.

In the Poster Session, first place was awarded to Carolina Moncion and her research named “Recording Multiscale Neural Activity Using Wireless Neurosensing System”. The second place was received by Chia-Pei Denise Hsu with her “Hydrodynamic Assessment of a Small Intestinal Submucosa Tubular Valves” research.

It is really good to won again, I actually won last year, so I guess it is a good streak, told as the double winner, Carolina Moncion.

On the other hand, Jared Leichner won the first place in the Ph.D. Oral Presentations with his research “Analysis of the Murine Motor & Somatosensory Cortical Columns: Fractional Volume, Automated Nuclei Assignment and Astrocyte Morphological Analysis”

Additionally, the day started with a dynamic conference of the first two guest speakers, Robert Hacker and Daniela Cadena, that came from StartUP FIU to encourage students to pursue entrepreneurship based on their innovative research.

It is always fun to talk with young engineering students. You want to help them to realize that it is not just engineering, but that they need a human-centric perspective. Great engineers combine inside about technology with an understanding of people in an equal value…and that is how you build great entrepreneurship expressed, Robert Hacker, Director of StartUP FIU.

Then, Dr. Mark A. Anastasio, Professor and Head of Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, talked with the students about Machine learning-enabled imaging science which is being actively explored to advance the ways that images are reconstructed in computed imaging modalities and the ways that imaging systems are optimized.

Congratulations to the Graduate Research Spring 2020 Winners and to all our students that participated showing their effort and incredible investigation!
