Park, Montoya Rodriguez named 2019 Purdue Systems Fellows
PhD students Herta Paola Montoya Rodriguez and Samuel Park have been selected by the Purdue Systems Collaboratory for the Systems Fellow Program. They will be presenting their projects on Monday, Sep. 23rd from 11:30am-1:00pm in WALC 2088.
The Systems Fellows Program is meant to support graduate students who want to participate in the convergence of knowledge and expertise from diverse disciplines to identify and address a complex system problem. This approach requires that faculty and students explore research questions at the intersection of their respective fields, conduct joint research projects and develop methodologies that can be used to reintegrate knowledge in pursuit of a new science of systems. Examples include research projects in developing a technology that also investigate the effects, reception and implications of the technology on humans, society and social interactions, or studying the advancement of secure communication and investigating the policy implications.
