New Semester Starts in A Virtual World

Fall 2020 will be for sure an unforgettable semester. SiDi has been primarily operated virtually since March. Without doubt, SiDi kicked off the new semester with a virtual lab meeting and it was a nice moment to capture. We welcomed the new PhD student Sumaiya Sultana Tanu, who recently graduated to the University of Denver with double MS degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Information and Communication Technology. It is always exciting to see new SiDi members at the beginning of a semester! Sumaiya will be working on a research project focusing on Design for Market Systems with Fairness. This project is under a recently NSF-funded EPSCoR initiative on Data Analytics that are Robust and Trusted (DART): From Smart Curation to Socially Aware Decision Making. We very much look forward to collaborating with our collaborators in Computer Engineering and Marketing Science to conduct this interdisciplinary research project which can potentially generate broad and high impacts to the diverse society we are living in today.
