We are proud to announce that Eduardo Romero has been awarded a GEM National Consortium Fellowship. The GEM program seeks to enhance the value of the nation’s human capital by increasing the participation of underrepresented groups at the master’s and doctoral levels in engineering and science. The fellowship, in conjunction with the GEM graduate institution and GEM employer, provides a stipend, full tuition and fees, and a paid summer internship.
Romero graduated Summa Cum Laude this May from the South Carolina Honors College with a major in Computer Science and minor in Mathematics. A 2017 Hispanic Scholarship Fund recipient, Eduardo was also a member of Phi Beta Kappa and the National Honors Society of Collegiate Scholars. His GEM internship will be at Adobe Systems Incorporated, where he will work to use Deep Learning algorithms for image classification to provide new tools to the analysts of Adobe’s Target team. Eduardo plans to pursue a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the Ohio State University and then a career in private sector research.
