2013 Winner of the Keystone Innovation Award

Alison EmmonsThe Keystone Innovation Award is presented to a student who participates in the Spring Undergraduate Research and Creativity Celebration and whose project offers an innovative approach to a research problem.

Congratulations to Alison Emmons, an environmental resource management and geology major, for being the 2013 recipient of this award which was presented at the Spring Undergraduate Research and Creativity Celebration in April 2013.

Alison's project, Gigapan technology, is a relatively new type of technology developed by NASA to capture high-resolution images of planets such as Mars. Alison’s research focuses on using similar technology to create individual, high-resolution pictures of geological formations. It’s a more direct and accurate way of studying formations and much better than relying on traditional photos or illustrations.
