Computing Student Received Latornell Grant

One of our Bachelor of Computing Students, Brandon Edwards, received an Arthur D. Latornell Travel Grant. This grantĀ is given to students whose research interests relate to resource management and/or resource conservation.

Brandon has been working on a collaborative project between Dr. Daniel Gillis in the School of Computer Science and Dr. Shoshanah Jacobs in the Department of Integrative Biology. Their research is looking at developing an efficient simulation computer model to simulate the life cycle of the piping plover, an endangered North American shorebird.
