Andujar takes prize in technical presentation competition

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Clemson doctoral student and GEM fellow Marvin Andujar recently took 2nd place in the National GEM Consortium’s Technical Presentation Competition, a national competition that showcases the technical writing and presentation skills of GEM fellows.

Andujar, who is working on brain-computer Interfaces with Dr. Juan Gilbert, Presidential Endowed Professor and Chair of the Human-Centered Computing Division of the School of Computing, presented his research to judges in two rounds at the GEM Consortium’s annual conference and was scored on technical content, organization and format, delivery, use of visual aids and the ability to field questions from the judges.

Andujar is just finishing up an internship at Intel as an Intel Diversity Scholar, where he investigated drivers’ cognitive workload deficits, and expects to earn his PhD from Clemson in 2017. Andujar is the first Intel Scholar to ever make it to the top three at the GEM Consortium competition.

The stated mission of the National GEM Consortium is “to enhance the value of the nation's human capital by increasing the participation of underrepresented groups (African Americans, American Indians, and Hispanic Americans) at the master's and doctoral levels in engineering and science.”
