Student-Faculty Collaborative Research Projects

The Student-Faculty Collaborative Scholarship Program at Rollins offers students the opportunity to participate in high-level scholarly research that is typically only available at the graduate-school level. What sets Rollins’ program apart from similar programs at other colleges and universities is that this program is a collaborative project between the student and a faculty member, not just a student project, or an assistantship to a faculty member’s own research.

Some Recent Research Collaborations:

  • Charles Peabody, mentored by Dr. Jennifer Seitzer, created a self-programming robot by building a grammatical evolution system that generates robot controllers for the Finch robot. See http://myweb.rollins.edu/JSEITZER/Finch.html

  • Eric Ciminelli, mentored by Dr. Jennifer Seitzer, created a Cloud-savvy app that regularly automatically searched the Internet  and informed subscribers of new and interesting information related to their chosen topic. See http://myweb.rollins.edu/JSEITZER/RDC.html

  • Erik Ander and Dr. Zeynep Teymuroglu addressed the role of media awareness on the spread and persistence of a drinking behavior in a community in their project entitled, Alcoholism-A Mathematical Model with Media Awareness Programs.

  • Shiying Gu, Felipe Quiroga, and Charles E. Hedges, mentored by Dr. Mark Anderson, develop a new graph recoloring game while doing collaborative research over the summer of 2014.

  • Jordan Rickman (class of 2014) and Jay Yellen presented their research paper,  Course Timetabling Using Graph Coloring and A.I. Techniques​, at an international conference in York, England in August 2014.
