Her presentation, "SmartWalk Assistance for Disabled Pedestrians," wowed judges at the semifinals on March 29, and she'll give her greatest performance yet on April 4 at 5:30 p.m. in the Student Union Gallagher Theatre.

Khosravi works with professor Larry Head, who is renowned for his research in connected vehicles and intelligent traffic signal control.

This is the second year in a row that SIE is represented in the final round of the campus-wide competition, which recognizes the best three-minute graduate student presentation of a research or creative project. Last year, SIE student Shayan Koshmagham took first place.
