Three CS students will be pursuing research within the Department of Computer Science as part of this year’s Summer Scholars Program: Junior Julie Jiang will be studying Graph Embedding in Large Scale Networks with Liping Liu; sophomore Faizan Muhammad will be studying Augmented Reality for Collaborative Service Robots with Jivko Sinapov; and junior Emily Sim will be studying Impact of a Normatively Charged, High-Risk, Multi-Agent System on a Robot's Norm Learning Process with Matthias Scheutz.

In addition, three students will be pursuing research in closely-related fields. Junior Man Duc Nguyen will be studying Learning Word Embeddings via Variational Tensor Factorization with Shuchin Aeron in Electrical and Computer Engineering; junior Catherine Cowell will be studying Learning Computer Programming in Early Childhood: The Impact of Speaking a Second Language with Marina Bers in Child Study and Human Development; and sophomore Ilya Yurchenko will be studying Neuronal Dynamics on Patterned Substrates with Christian Staii in Physics and Astronomy.

Summer Scholars pursue ten-week independent research projects over the summer, and present their research throughout the following academic year.
