Congratulations to iiD faculty member Guglielmo Scovazzi, who has been named a recipient of the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). The recognition is highest honor bestowed by the United States government on science and engineering professionals in the early stages of their independent research careers.
On January 17, 2017, the Information Initiative at Duke held their annual Data+ Information Fair to showcase the program’s offerings of summer 2017 Data Projects, and to encourage students to apply to the program.
Representatives from each of the 24 projects were available to answer student questions and explain what they hoped to achieve during the 10-week summer research program that starts on May 22.
Learn how Duke undergraduates and iiD faculty were involved in the Image Processing Algorithms for Art Conservation project and the Reunited: Francescuccio Ghissi’s St. John Altarpiece exhibit at NC Museum of Art.
Summer 2015 Data+ students Raghav Saboo, Arjun Devarajan, and Wuming Zhang developed and co-authored the article “Distributed solar photovoltaic array location and extent dataset for remote sensing object identification,” published for open access in Scientific Data, a Nature journal.
Duke’s Data+ summer research program received the gold prize in the natural sciences category at the Reimagine Education Conference and Awards in Philadelphia.
