Kalina Scarbrough, a junior in industrial and systems engineering, won first place in the 2021 IISE Mid-Atlantic Technical Regional Competition for her paper, “Real-Time Sensor-Based Prediction of Soil Moisture in Green Infrastructure: Case Study.”
“The project is on monitoring green infrastructures, specifically bio-retentions, and predicting their future state,” she said Scarbrough. “I am currently writing an academic journal article on this research to hopefully get published in the following months.”
The paper presents research that she has done over the last two years with ISE Associate Professor Anahita Khojandi. Scarbrough has been invited, and hopes to attend, the IISE Annual Conference in May.
