Linguistics major Emily Grabowski '18 is the 1st Place winner of the Neukom Prize for Outstanding Undergraduate Research in Computational Science for  2017. Emily developed software as part of Prof. Laura McPherson's ATLAS project. ATLAS is a computational tool designed to help linguists analyze pitch data from tonal languages.

"The Neukom Prizes were created to encourage undergraduate and graduate interest in research and to recognize outstanding research in the computational sciences. Computational science and computational techniques have enabled and encouraged a relatively early introduction to first-rate computationally-oriented research for undergraduates."
