REU: Research Experience for Undergraduates in Collaborative Data Visualization Applications
8-Weeks, Paid Research
June 5, 2017 – July 28, 2017
The program identified research collaborators with visualization needs and assigns each student to a REU team. Each REU Team consists of a research/science collaborator, a visualization mentor and a visualization REU student. This arrangement fosters collaboration among team members, an appreciation of the visualization process and an understanding of the role visualization plays in discovery and analysis. Research areas of this site include: computer science, genetics and biochemistry, geophysics, sociology, molecular modeling and simulation, inorganic chemistry, social media, parks recreation tourism management, biological sciences and digital humanities. Students participated in activities as a member of their REU Team, their Research Lab, and their REU cohort thereby creating a rich, multidisciplinary research experience that included enrichment lectures, excursions and social events.
In addition to the exposure to cutting edge research, students selected to participate received a travel stipend for one round trip to and from Clemson, a housing allowance, a bi-weekly stipend to cover living expenses and access to research faculty and cyberinfrastructure resources to help facilitate their success in the program.
This program accepted applications until March 1, 2017. Funding was available for 10 undergraduates. This REU Site was sponsored by NSF ACI Grant No. 1359223 and was directed and coordinated by Dr Wole Oyekoya.
