Demetrius to present poster at Great Minds in STEM

Following his win for best poster (covered in UTEP News article) at the UTEP COURI Symposium in the Spring and a well received reception at the RECOMB 2022 poster session, lab member Demetrius Hernandez will be participating in the poster competition at the Great Minds in STEM meeting in Pasadena, CA on October 6th. The poster is tentatively titled “Efficient minimizer schemes using deep networks”.

3 lab members present, Demetrius wins best poster

On Saturday, 30 April 2022 3 members of the lab presented posters at the annual UTEP COURI (Campus Office for Undergraduate Research Initiatives) Symposium. Approximately 115 undergraduates presented 110 posters from across the university. From those, our own Demetrius Hernandez won best poster presentation in the “Engineering, Computational, and Applied Science” category (covered in UTEP news). Congratulations Demetrius!
