|Senior Jacob Green|
Jacob has worked in the lab on several projects, most of which have involved agent-based modeling. After completing his degree at UE, he plans to get his Master's Degree and then work building computer models and network systems. He says that his favorite thing about working in the CSML "is the openness of the environment and the encouragement to think outside the box."
|Sophomore Jacob Ball|
Jacob was a member of our internship staff last semester (along with the other Jacob pictured above). After graduation, Mr. Ball hopes to become an expert programmer for either Google or Apple. He says that his favorite thing about working in the CSML is that "the lab has all the elements of getting work done including silence, white boards, and computing power."
|Senior Andrey Biryuchinskiy|
After graduating this December, he hopes to work in the banking industry financing renewable energy projects or attend graduate school in a Master's of Finance program. He says that "the complexity and variety of tasks assigned to students is what I really enjoy about the CSML. We receive guidance from Doc [that's me], but we are free to come up with the solutions on our own."
|Junior Alycia Olson|
After graduating from UE, she hopes either to go to graduate school or join the Air Force as an officer. Her favorite thing about the CSML is her excitement about "working with predictive modeling ... and the free tea." (Someone keeps eating the free cookies too, but I don't think it's her.)
Both Jacob and Alycia are learning from the seniors pictured above. One of our hopes in the CSML is that past interns will return in future semesters to continue to work on our projects and to help train the next generation of interns.
|Senior Evan Snider|
After graduation, Evan hopes to work in a marketing environment that allows him to use his skills as a creative writer. He says that his favorite thing about working in the CSML is that "it's great to be around other students with interests in cognitive science and learning in general."
|Director Doc Beavers|
Oh, and I should add that I also enjoy working with networks and predictive modeling from the perspective of complex systems. All of this fascinates me to no end. Cookies, tea, models and students: things don't get much better than this. Life is good! Yeah. Cookies. Yeah.
