Twenty UAB honors students presented their research at NCUR – National Conference on Undergraduate Research. Our student Jacob Laurel presented two papers: A High-Performance Computing Approach to Uncertainty in SWEDD Diagnostics (work mentored by Prof. Marstrander) and An Adaptive Kernel-Growing Medial Filter for Ultra-High Noise Image Reconstruction (work mentored by Dr. Nakhmani). Congratulations Jacob!
Ali Darwish, UAB/UAH PhD Computer Engineering student and Dr, Arie Nakhmani are part of a team from UAB, UAH, Auburn University, and George Washington University who proposed to inspect Alabama’s dams using a high tech approach using drones, connected sensors, and cloud technology. The team won the first place prize in the dream phase of $9,000 for their proposal named “One crack away from a disaster“.
