A 21 year-old senior at the University of Maryland-Baltimore, Darius has joined our lab through Georgia Tech’s SURE (Summer Undergraduate Research Experience) program. He has been tasked with developing and optimizing a database tool for Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) to aid in all future approaches to research on this illness. Back at the University of Maryland, Darius spends his free time hiking, analyzing movies and listening to R&B, particularly Anderson Paak. He has already aided the lab tremendously with his work as well as kept us laughing with his humor.

A 20 year-old Junior from the University of Missouri, James has joined our lab for the summer through Emory’s PERSE (Pediatric Engineering Research Summer Experience) program. He has been tasked with utilizing SEM-NET, a text mining tool developed by our lab, to find correlations with cardiovascular data, and use that information to better determine the direction of future research in this area. Back at Missouri, James plays tennis for their club team, volunteers as a tutor for high school students, jams on the ukulele and paints. He is an extremely talented young student with a bright future, and our lab is lucky to have him.
During the 2019 Annual Data Science Forum, Jayant was given the honor of presenting his research as a speaker for the Machine Learning in Science and Engineering Symposium (MLSE). He talked about his use of machine learning to improve diagnostics of Alzheimer’s Disease and how the promising results could have a huge impact on medicine’s approach to this form of dementia. This lab is proud of Jayant’s success thus far and looks forward to all future accomplishments he will achieve.
