Summer 2023 Interns

  •  Abdelqadar Radhwan successfully completed his summer undergraduate research assignment at the University of Dayton. Abdelqadar conducted research under the supervision of Dr. Thomas Williams that focused on molecular mechanisms that translate Drosophila Melanogaster genetic variation into overt phenotypic variation. The purpose of this research is to better understand the causes of individuality and evolutionary novelty. Abdelqadar made substantial contributions to Dr. Williams’ lab this summer and has been invited to continue his research this fall with the support of Sinclair-LSAMP.
  • Ryann Crockett successfully completed her undergraduate research assignment in the Knowledge and Semantic Technologies Laboratory at Wright State University. Under the supervision of Dr. Cogan Matthew Shimizu, Ryann was able to gain first-hand experience using methods for exploring large and complex data sets. Some of the methods that Ryann explored include statistical pattern recognition, multivariate data analysis, modeling and simulation, and scientific visualization. Ryann gained significant insight into the field of data science and analytics and developed transferable skills in computer programming.
