Divit Singh successfully defends MS thesis

Divit Singh, a member of the Crowd Lab and computer science MS┬ástudent co-advised by Dr. Luther and Dr. T.M. Murali, successfully defended his master’s thesis today. Divit┬ácontributed to GraphSpace, an online hub for sharing biological network data; and GraphCrowd, an extension for crowdsourcing the visualization of these networks. Divit also conducted several experiments showing that GraphCrowd generates network layouts that are as effective as those created by expert biologists. Congrats Divit!
