Traffic21 welcomes and is pleased to sponsor Tessa Guengerich as part of this year’s CMU Robotics Institute Summer Scholars (RISS) program. Currently an undergraduate student at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, she arrives in Pittsburgh hoping to learn more about machine learning and programming and learn more about the implementation of robots outside of academia.  Tessa says she is excited to learn about things she wasn’t exposed to before (computational statistics and machine learning) and is also excited to be surrounded by other students from around the world.

Carnegie Mellon’s RISS Program is an eleven-week summer (June 1 to mid-August) undergraduate research program that immerses a diverse cohort of scholars in cutting-edge robotics projects that drive innovation and have real-world impact. Launched in 2006, RISS is among the best and most comprehensive robotics research programs for undergraduates in the world.
