DEPARTMENT(S): 
April 28, 2017

On April 11, graduate students gave their last presentations at the Graduate Research Innovation Exchange (GRIE) and the Investing in Ideas with Impact (i3). 

GRIE is a two-hour poster presentation event during which up to 60 judges (and countless WPI community members) walk informally throughout the Rubin Campus Center Odeum and ask questions about the presentations and engage students in discussion. 

Tabassum Kakar, a PhD candidate presented “DDI-Viz: A Visual Analytics Tool for Exploring Drug-Drug Interaction” and was placed third in Data Science category.  Kakar says seeing a year’s worth of research compiled into one clear poster is appealing to her, as it lets her see all of her work in a new way.
