Three students in the Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering and Computing presented their research work at the Posters at the Georgia Capitol event, during which undergraduate students can showcase their scholarly work across a multitude of disciplines.
Wesley O’Quinn, a senior electrical engineering student, presented his research in the area of improving the diagnosis of pneumonia using Deep Learning Networks, while Andrew Kalaani and Justin McCorkle, both junior electrical engineering students, presented their research in the field of brain-computer-interface using electroencephalogram (EEG). They represented two of the more than 40 posters presented.
“It was an honor to present at the Poster at the Capitol event and represent Georgia Southern University,” said Kalaani. “I am very thankful for the Allen E. Paulson College of Engineering and Computing for funding this research and for my research advisor who helped us throughout the process.”
The one-day event gave qualifying undergraduate students from different universities across the state the opportunity to showcase faculty-mentored research posters before legislators, as well as students and faculty from other schools.
“I am proud of the high-quality research that our electrical and computer engineering undergraduate students are producing at Georgia Southern and how they represented the university very well at the event,” said Rami Haddad, Ph.D., faculty mentor for the projects. “The Poster at the Capitol event provided a much-needed platform for our undergraduate students to present their research to our legislators and highlight the undergraduate research efforts across the state.”
