The Center for Global Engagement hosted an honors tea on October 23, with the visiting Rooney Scholar, Dr. Werner Kristjanpoller. At the tea, Dr. Kristjanpoller discussed his background in business and engineering, and the extensive work he has done in each field. He also detailed the current research he is conducting here at Robert Morris University involving Bitcoin. I found this tea to be an excellent opportunity to learn about research being conducted in the engineering and business fields. One area of research that particularly interested me was Dr. Kristjanpoller’s work with artificial intelligence to predict future behavior and currency trends. Hearing about his successful endeavors builds excitement for my future hope of researching in the field of prosthetics.
