Josh Skelton, a computer game design and development (CGDD) major, has been accepted for a summer research position at the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga.
Funded by the National Science Foundation, the program is very competitive – less than 7 percent of applicants are accepted, according to Dr. Han Reichgelt, dean of the School of Computing and Software Engineering (CSE).
Skelton will have the opportunity to work with a faculty member at the host institution on a summer research project and will join a biomedical informatics research team. Skelton will work on the X-Box Kinect SDK and research algorithms that can be used for physical therapy/rehabilitation patients.
CSE honored Skelton with its CGDD Undergraduate Award at the 2012 Student Awards Banquet in late April.
