UPRM CREST graduate student Berenice Rodríguez and undergraduate Nicole Blanco were selected as finalists in the SHPE Technical Competitions 2011, which will be held in Anaheim, California in the final week of October this year. Berenice is finalist with both, a technical poster and a paper –for a second year in a row-, and Nicole with a technical poster. They both work with Dr. Mauricio Cabrera-Rios in his research group.

The SHPE technical competitions are held each year concurrently with the SHPE Conference 2011, and “provide undergraduate and graduate participants an opportunity to compete by delivering their research in written and oral form before an audience of their peers” (

Each of our students will receive a registration fee waiver, hotel lodging, and a travel stipend for their airfare.

We wish Berenice and Nicole much success in the competition!
