We are Pleased to Welcome Rahul Jayachandran and Joel Duah For Our Summer 2024 REU Student

“Hi, I’m Rahul Jayachandran and I’m a rising college sophomore from Glastonbury, CT. I am pursuing a degree in computer science and math and am excited to spend this summer conducting research at UConn. In my free time I enjoy rowing and playing piano.”


“Hello, I’m Joel Duah, a junior at UConn from Manchester, CT. I’m pursuing a major in Computer Science and Engineering with a concentration in Computational Data Analytics. I’m enthusiastic about applying my knowledge from past semesters to this research opportunity, particularly in exploring voting patterns in Connecticut. Through this REU, I aim to increase my proficiency in handling data and making it more accessible to individuals without technical backgrounds. Outside of academics, I find joy in hiking and reading.”
