MERIT-BIEN Poster Wins Two Awards at NSF Program Meeting

A poster created by students participating in the Maryland Engineering Research Internship Teams (MERIT) Biosystems Internships for Engineers (BIEN) undergraduate summer research program earned two awards at a recent meeting for the National Science Foundation (NSF) Computer, Information Science & Engineering (CISE) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program.

For the first time ever, a MERIT-BIEN project won two awards at a NSF CISE REU poster session. The poster, titled “Robust Speech Recognition,” was created by undergraduate researchers Rob Bailey and Wody Edji, who were mentored by Carol Espy-Wilson and her graduate student advisee Vikram Mitra. The poster received the awards for most interesting project and most technically challenging project. Prizes were also awarded for best project description, best design, and best overall poster.

The students’ "Robust Speech Recognition" poster also received the best overall BIEN project award at the 2009 MERIT Fair.

Prof. Pamela Abshire and Prof. Min Wu are the PIs for this REU site program which is funded by the National Science Foundation
