Elisabeth Petit-Bois will participate this summer in a program of CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, one of the largest and most prestigious scientific laboratories in the world
Sunday, June 2, 2019 ((rezonodwes. com)) – Software Engineering Student at Kennesaw State University (College of Computing and Software Engineering Elisabeth Petit-Bois), whose parents are from Port-de-Paix, North West, was selected for an elite research program at CERN, Switzerland
Petit-Bois was selected from a group of 1,660 students representing 19 countries. This summer, she will work to perfect her art and become one of 40 students from around the world and one of only two American students to participate in CERN's Openlab Summer School Program, a public-private partnership that aims to to develop advanced computing solutions for scientific research.
She will travel to CERN headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, on June 15, to participate in the nine-week program, in which she will use state-of-the-art computer technology and study its use in high-energy physics.
“In terms of summer research opportunities, I knew I wanted to find something that would allow me to explore human and computer interactions,” said Petit-Bois, excited to be one of only two students Americans represented in this year's cohort at CERN
A graduate of Dacula High School in Gwinnett County, Petit-Bois is a member of the honorary computer society Upsilon Pi Epsilon and the National Society of Black Engineers ( NSBE).
In November 2018, she won first place at the NSBE Regional Fall Conference for her presentation on “Genetic Algorithm Based Image and Segmentation Using Markov Field Modeling”. random. ”
Elisabeth Petit-Bois spent most of her undergraduate studies researching how humans can integrate artificial intelligence into everyday life.
She did research at the KSU Research Center (CMVSR) lab alongside her professors and did an internship at IBM's Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights.
