Alumni Nikolas Lamb graduated from CLCS in 2011, and then graduated from Dryden High School with a scholarship to Clarkson University, in Potsdam NY. Nikolas is currently a junior at Clarkson, and is working towards a degree in Computer Science with a minor in Math.
During his sophomore year at Clarkson, Nikolas was invited to do research in the TARS lab, under the direction of Drs. Sean and Natasha Benarjee. “This is, quite honestly, the thing I’m most excited about,” says Nik. Professor Benarjee must have seen something special in this serious young man. Nik’s work in the lab is with computer vision, computer graphics, and computational fabrication. It combines computer vision algorithms with 3D printing and scanning technologies. He likes to find creative ways to apply 3D printing to digital imaging problems. In addition to doing his own research, he also mentors three other undergraduate students, including one honors student.
This year, Nikolas submitted three research papers to the 24th International Conference on Multimedia Modeling. All three papers were accepted and published. Nikolas and another undergraduate researcher from the TARS lab headed to Bangkok, Thailand in February 2018, to attend the prestigious conference. It’s a long way from the small, private school in Freeville, New York!
