HPWREN Student Researchers Present at San Diego Supercomputer Center Poster Session

Kuo-Wen Lo, Angie Ng, Jeff Pinnow, and Carmen Zavala recently presented posters regarding their HPWREN research. The August 10 session was held at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) Summer Student Poster Session.

Jeff Pinnow, a UCSD pre-medical student, worked with Kim Bruch of SDSC and Bob Pozos of SDSU to develop a telemedicine literature review and an on-line course this summer. The course focuses on glucose and metabolism and will be tested with a focus group at one of the learning centers via HPWREN; the literature review was presented at a UCSD Summer Research Program conference and will soon be posted on the HPWREN web site. Jeff also presented his summer research at a Native American Physician's Conference in New Mexico.

Carmen Zavala, a UCSD math education (computer science concentration) student, also worked with Kim Bruch this summer - focusing her efforts on distance learning. Carmen specifically looked at ways in which high-speed networks like HPWREN can better assist with distance learning in remote education communities.

While Jeff and Carmen were funded by EOT-PACI this summer, the HPWREN team has three Research Experience for Undergraduates (REUs) that are on-board for a year.

Angie Ng, a UCSD electrical engineering student, is primarily focusing on two projects: 1) literature review of RF effects on humans, and 2) field work regarding spectrum analysis, power measurements, etc. Meanwhile, UCSD computer science student Kuo-wen Lo works closely with Todd Hansen on HPWREN network analysis and measurement.

Sunjeev Sikand, a UCSD computer science student, will join the REU students on the HPWREN project in September. His research will also focus on network measurement and analysis.
