Undergraduate Project Showcase 2018

The inaugural Computer Science Undergraduate Project Showcase celebrated student inquiry in computer science. Students presented posters on projects from mentored research, class projects, and independent work. The projects showcased students creatively applying skills and concepts from their computer science coursework.  Students presented 22 posters.  

Two posters received recognition for research:

  • Amy Yang worked on research with Prof. Jeff Chase for A Scalable Cryptocurrency Based on A Byzantine-Safe Key-Value Store.
  • Computer Science students Alison Huang, Robert Steilberg, Matthew Tribby, and  Steven Yang collaborated with Global Health students Linh Bui and Kathryn Watkins on a Bass Connections project: mHealth for Better Routine Immunization Data in Honduras.

One poster was recognized in terms of its innovation as a project from the Duke Reporters’ Lab:

  • Tech & Check Alerts by Asa Royal, Lucas Fagan, and Helena Merk
