5 NSF Graduate Research Fellowships awarded to UH students, alumna
Date:4/20/2012

at Carnegie Mellon University and electrophysiology in Dr. James DiCarlo's lab at MIT. This type of imaging measures brain activity by detecting associated changes in blood flow. Seibert participated in the PURS program in spring 2012 and completed a senior honors thesis in collaboration with the Tarr lab, with engineering technology professor George Zouridakis as his UH mentor, in 2011. Most recently in collaboration with the Tarr lab, Seibert has used a biologically inspired model to predict brain activity in humans while they viewed pictures of natural objects. In the fall, Darren will begin his graduate studies at MIT.

  • Audrey Cheong began her academic career at UH as an undergraduate, participating in the PURS program in spring 2010, followed by a summer internship at the Methodist Hospital Research Institute in the Texas Medical Center. As a graduate student at UH, Cheong is assisting in the development of neural implants that can allow users to control prosthetic limbs with their mind. The immune system treats these implants as foreign invaders and eventually prevents them from receiving signals from the brain. Working under Badrinath Roysam, chair of the department of electrical and computer engineering, Cheong is adding new capabilities to an automated image analysis software suite that will allow it to better track and analyze specific cell and tissue types involved in the brain's immune response to these implants. Ideally, a more sophisticated understanding of this immune response will allow for the design of implants that will not be rejected by the brain. Cheong also has developed a user interface using the Microsoft Kinect device for image viewing systems in collaboration with UH computer science professor Ioannis Kakadiaris.

  • Cameron Williams is a mathematics major and physics minor. Throughout his undergraduate career, Williams has conducted research in the field of supersymmetric quantum mechanics with professors Don Kouri
