Trainee wins first prize for research poster

Competing with all graduates students of the University of Maine, IGERT student Kraig King won the first prize for his research poster. Kraig King presented his research work at the annual Graduate Expo at the University of Maine in April 2010. His research focuses on developing so-called tiny models of well-known processes that are run on individual sensor nodes in a sensor network. Each sensor node being aware of the process at hand and its location with regard to the event can minimize communication with other nodes. Global data collection in the sensor network is reduced to handling unexpected events. Thereby, data communication is reduced by 80%.
