What challenges did she face?
- Rina struggled to identify a particular research area during the exploratory stage. They were working on a project that required expertise of mathematics, computer science, and electrical engineering. This necessitated a greater understanding of advanced concepts including sampling theory, frequency response, analog to digital conversion, and network theory.
The mentor is an Assistant Professor of Engineering at Dartmouth College. Previously, he worked as a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering at Stanford University.
How did our program help her?
- She created a prototype for a small-scale water leakage sensor circuit and control system as part of the program.
