Tianhui "Michael" Li, a senior computer science major from Portland, Oregon, is interested in studying classic and quantum information theory. For his junior project, he analyzed PageRank and other web search ranking algorithms with Kevin Wayne.

Tamara Broderick, a senior mathematics major from Cleveland, Ohio, plans to focus primarily on the intersection of probability theory, measure theory and machine learning. For her junior independent work, she worked on a machine-learning project with Rob Schapire to track animals in Panama.
