Marco Maggioni and fellow graduate students Jillian Aurisano (UIC) and Peter Mwangi (U Nairobi) in Kenya, at the inception of the "Enhanced Field Data Collection with Automatic GPS Mapping on Android-based Tablets" project, for which Marco has received the 2012 UIC Provost's Award for Graduate Research. Mayank Lahiri, a PhD student in the Computational Population Biology Lab, has received the Provost's Award for his project on automatic identification of zebras from photographs, a project he has started in Kenya as a student in the Field Computational Population Biology course this semester. He will use the award to go back to Kenya to validate, fine-tune, and deploy the system where it is most needed: in the field, so the nature conservancy staff, field assistants, researchers, and scouts can use it to do their job studying and saving zebras.
