SURP fellowship awarded!


Team leader Alissa Powers, already working in Musical-Moods as part of her Honor project, has been awarded a SURP fellowship to carry out further research and develop an innovative Game With A Purpose!

The Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) provides funding for UCI undergraduates from all disciplines who are conducting summer research projects or creative activities under the guidance of UCI faculty members.

Congratulations to Alissa and happy SURPing!

Advised research group wins ICS engineering competition!


In the last four months, I have been advising a group of PhD students from the Department of Engineering at UCI. They name themselves WeGroove and are working on a new music recommendation system by using audio classification and feature extraction on motion data.

I am proud to announce that they have just won 2nd in the Butterworth Product Development Competition in ICS at the Donald Bren School at UCI, and received $5000 award!
