Rita goes to Washington

UW CSE undergraduate Rita Sodt will travel to Washington DC on April 13th to participate in the 14th annual “Posters on the Hill” program sponsored by the Council on Undergraduate Research.  The goal is to expose Members of Congress to the importance of undergraduate research.

Rita works with UW Pathology professor Kristin Swanson on mathematical models to simulate brain tumor growth.  The models make it possible to make predictions about how a tumor will spread, leading to improved tumor treatments.
