Frank Ge, ’22, Computer Science

I studied the links between seismology and weather with a focus on two primary projects. The first was developing an algorithm that would track the current locations of ocean seismometers given their past locations; the second was developing methods to visualize and research the effect of hurricanes on the seismic data produced by the Guyot Hall seismometer. This experience taught me many lessons in data science, allowing me to become more familiar with scripting in MATLAB and signal processing. This internship encouraged me to pursue
more programming projects in the future and opened my eyes to the intriguing possibilities of research.
