Anterior Cruciate Ligaments
By Alexis Jenkins
Alexis Jenkins definitely is very active from the start. Sports have always been her passion; growing up, you could always catch her outside at the softball field playing with her high school, tournament team, or family. This all was until she had an almost career-ending injury occur not just once but twice. Luckily, she could continue to play two years of college softball, but she always wondered why tearing your ACL, also known as your Anterior Cruciate Ligament, was such a big deal. Now years later, she is a Senior here at Millersville studying Sports Journalism. After graduation, she plans to work her way into the ESPN world to eventually become an ESPN Broadcast Journalist.
Combining Unsupervised and Supervised Learning for Credit Card Fraud Detection
By briar sauble
Briar is a senior at Millersville University from Hanover, Pennsylvania. He currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science in computer science, and began this project as an undergraduate thesis requirement for Millersville University's Honor's College. He is passionate about programming, data science, and cyber security, all topics which led to the exploration done within his current research. Briar's main drive for putting together his work was a desire to understand data mining algorithms and how they can be manipulated and simplified for real world applications. Similarly, the complexities of modern machine learning and its difficulty of interpretation made an incentive for him to create a better understanding through further study. His paper recognizes the limitations of current machine learning methods in order to make a combined approach that helps find cases of credit card fraud. Briar plans to pursue a career as a software engineer, desiring to put his work into use as a learning opportunity that furthers his experience in the field of computer science.
