Rosemarie Day featured by Intel Software

R DayRecent Alumna, Rosemarie Day ’17 and the Internet of Things (IoT) project which she completed under the advisement of Professor Hassan S. Salehi, are now featured on the Intel website. Rosemarie, a computer engineering major, has been selected as an Intel Software Innovator for IoT with a focus on health analytics. The innovator program recognizes up and coming developers by featuring them on Intel’s website and recommending them for speaking events and project work.

Hassan Salehi, assistant professor of the Samuel I Ward Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, was Rosemarie’s faculty advisor for her capstone design project where she developed a mobile app to help headache sufferers by tracking environmental patterns. Rosemarie won first place at the spring 2017 CETA Design Expo. Upon graduation, Rosemarie joined iDevices in Avon, Conn. as an IoT DevOps Engineer, where she had interned the summer before her senior year. iDevices sponsored Rosemarie’s CETA Design Expo project.

It is important to the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA) that students make connections throughout their college career to enable them to be successful upon graduation, yet this is not the only factor that played into Rosemarie’s success. Early exposure to a STEM field and attending a technical high school enabled her to cultivate an interest in engineering at an early age. The CETA Student Ambassadors & Leadership Society, advised and organized by Dean Hisham Alnajjar, Professor Ying Yu and Director of Collegiate Student Services, Julie Spring, does its part to engage younger students in STEM during Engineers Week.

When Intel asked Rosemarie what she saw for the future in technology, she referenced the growing trend of data analytics. She uses data collection and analysis to identify environmental patterns for her mobile app. Data analytics was a common topic of conversation at the Tech Talent Workshop on September 22.

Rosemarie is currently collaborating with Professor Salehi on a journal article about the research done during her bachelor’s degree for analyzing environmental changes in the home. They are planning to publish the paper soon in the IEEE IoT Journal.

She will be conducting an on-campus Intel Alliance Workshop on Thursday, October 12, educating students on topics such as Amazon Web Services IoT and how to run basic computer vision using OpenCV.
