Alan Min Wins National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship
Alan Min, a graduating senior majoring in computer science, mathematics, and statistics, is a recipient of the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship.
The program recognizes and supports outstanding students in STEM disciplines who are pursuing graduate degrees at accredited U.S. institutions. The fellowship was awarded to 2,000 young scientists out of 12,000 applicants from across the country.
In a research project through Purdue’s Department of Chemical Engineering, Min used machine learning to identify cell types based on fluorescent microscopy images. During a summer internship with the National Institutes of Health, he worked with fMRI brain scans. As a graduate student, he hopes to apply Bayesian statistics to network models, particularly for biological systems.
