Mentoring Process

The undergraduate students selected as part of the REU program will be paired with graduate students working on the BIG Data project. The project team at PSU is a subset of the entire project team that comprises of researchers at UT Austin, Rutgers, IBM and NVidia Corporation. Our plan is to implement processes such as “Research Tour of Duty” that will afford each member of the team to work with members of the team at the other partnering institutions so that they become trained in computational and seismic modeling aspects as well. In addition to these team training opportunities, the PI Srinivasan will schedule weekly meetings with the undergraduate researchers to discuss research findings and suggest research approaches. It is also planned to showcase the undergraduate student research in the form of research posters and paper presentations at research meetings both on campus and at the partnering institutions. The PI will be actively engaged in preparing the student researchers for these presentations.
