Seven Georgia Tech students hired for the 2023 summer research internship program sponsored by the Institute for People and Technology (IPaT) presented their projects on Aug. 4. The program is run in partnership with Serve-Learn-Sustain, and this paid summer experience is tailored to students looking to gain real-world experience related to research and community engagement. Students received up to $6,000 for their full-time research internship. Below are the students and their final projects.
* Alexa Hanna, a senior majoring in computer science, presented “Integrating Esports Into Cybersecurity Education.”
* Amrita Manickandan, a junior majoring in computer science, presented “Augmented Reality Aircraft Maintenance Project.”
* Corinne Cutts, a sophomore majoring in psychology, presented her experience working with the Cognitive Empowerment Program focusing on the installation of smart home technology and safety.
* Geehoon Jung, a junior majoring in computer engineering, presented work and research related to the Aware Home. The home is an interdisciplinary research facility aimed at addressing the fundamental technical, design, and social challenges for people in a home setting. Machine learning approaches for indoor location using the Apple watch and Bluetooth were explored.
* William Dyches, a junior majoring in electrical engineering, presented a proposed solution and analysis of using satellites to deliver water level sensor information to support the Coastal Equity and Resilience Hub, which is working to help communities across coastal Georgia reduce the impacts of extreme weather and climate change.
* Suchir Sur, a junior majoring in mechanical engineering, helped to develop a working simulation of a moving toilet system to assist people with impairment issues or disabilities. His research was done with Georgia Tech’s Aware Home research team.
* Ritu Atreyas, a junior majoring in computer science, worked on a user interface related to CellWatch, a mobile app that allows you to record, view, and analyze cellular connectivity. This research project is focused on measuring and characterizing the availability and quality of mobile broadband in rural areas.
IPaT congratulates each intern for helping to further people and technology research this summer.
