Permanent link Sam Kelly did an internship this summer with the Department of Homeland Security at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The poster and presentation that he did about his project placed in the top 10% out of over 100 posters presented on all of the computer science projects done at the lab this summer, and he won a ribbon and a special LLNL coin for this.
Permanent link Great news from a former student: Ritwik Niyogi's Dickinson math honors thesis work has been published as a 20-page article in the peer-reviewed academic journal PLOS Computational Biology. The title of the article is "Dynamic Excitatory and Inhibitory Gain Modulation Can Produce Flexible, Robust and Optimal Decision-making." The full citation is
Niyogi RK, Wong-Lin K (2013) Dynamic Excitatory and Inhibitory Gain Modulation Can Produce Flexible, Robust and Optimal Decision-making. PLoS Comput Biol 9(6): e1003099. doi:10.1371/journal.pcbi.1003099
and the article itself is available from
Congratulations to Ritwik!
Mark your calendars! Join the Math/CS Department for a Welcome Back BBQ on Thursday, August 29th at Noon in the Rector Courtyard (Rain Location is Rector Atrium).
