2010 Graduate Student Honors Competition Highlights Exceptional Research

Judges from Harris RF Communications with presenters Andrew DeOrio, Xiaodi Wu, James Boerkoel, Feng Qian, and Prof. Hayes

CSE held its seventh annual Graduate Student Honors Competition on December 8, 2010. The competition was the culmination of a process that narrowed the field of entrants to four finalists, each of whom gave a summary presentation on an area of their research. CSE faculty and a guest judge from Harris RF Communications ranked the finalist's presentations.

Our congratualtions to all four finalists who presented! Following are details on their presentations:
