Over the summer, Lia Phillips conducted research at Howard University through her REU experience. She had the opportunity this past weekend to present at PhysCon in Providence, RI. Lia's poster presentation emphasized the machine learning algorithm she developed this summer. The algorithm accepts a raman spectra of functionalized graphene nanoplatelets and determines the compounds present in the sample. Developing this algorithm has allowed Lia to differentiate between samples by separating data in six-dimensional space, creating a database she can reference in the future. While at the conference, Lia attended a career fair, networked with fellow scientists from all over the country, and even attended a talk from our very own Ms. Ramsdell. She encourages all undergraduates to attend PhysCon, as it was a very rewarding experience for her. Great work, Lia!
