Hello, my name is Perpetual Amoah, a junior of Texas Southern University (Houston, TX), Department of Computer Science. My cumulative GPA is 3.96/4.0 and I will be graduating in May 2007 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and an Associates degree in Physics. One of my goals is to enroll in graduate school by fall 2007.
This site is about my Summer 2005 undergraduate research experience in Computer Science through the Distributed Mentor Project (DMP) at Texas A & M University. I'm working under an absolutely awesome advisor and mentor, Dr. Nancy Amato, with the great bunch of Ph.D. students in the PARASOL lab.
I hope that the DMP program will continue to offer research experiences to female undergraduates for a long time to come.
I am interested in simulating group behaviors, motion planning for static and dynamic environments and bioinformatics.
The links below contain an account of my marvelous experience in Texas A & M University, College Station. I can honestly say that this summer is my best summer in the United States of America. I have met many wonderful people, made great progress on Composable Group Behaviors research. Also, I have grown personally in the area of self-esteem, gained more confidence about my major and I really know what to do after graduation. Texas A & M University and the DMP program will always hold pleasant memories. Thanks to my advisor Dr. Nancy Amato, Samuel Rodriguez, my Ph.D. student mentor and all people in Parasol Lab!
