5 NSF Graduate Research Fellowships awarded to UH students, alumna

in the chemistry department and Bernhard Bodmann in the mathematics department. Williams is working to develop a type of generalization of the Fourier transform, which is used extensively in applications ranging from analyzing images and sounds to aiding in uncovering how waves propagate in the Earth based on seismic data. This is very useful for oil exploration, among other fields. It is hoped the generalization he developed will be useful in the analysis of seismic data and can have a significant impact in audio engineering and other fields, much like the Fourier transform. The group is now beginning to look into applications of these techniques with an emphasis on the analysis of seismic data. As a result of this project and its potential applications, Williams was offered an internship with Petroleum Geo-Services for the upcoming summer. He plans to attend the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario, in the fall.

  • Maria Arredondo conducted her research as an undergraduate at UH with assistant professor Hanako Yoshida in the Cognitive Development Lab in the psychology department and completed her senior honors thesis in 2010. She is now a graduate student at the University of Michigan, studying developmental psychology. During her time at UH, Arredondo traveled to Argentina to collect data with children, specifically looking at the developmental trend of executive function across cultures. She became interested in children's cognitive development during her experience at the Cognitive Development Lab and is now investigating the effects of bilingualism and socioeconomic status on reading acquisition.

    Honorable mentions went to Kevin Darby and Andrea Schlather, who both received their bachelor's degrees from UH, and Preston Hartzell, a current graduate student in civil engineering.
