Students win Chicago Android eco-challenge hackathon

Loyola computer science graduate students Matthew Wojtowicz and Emily Brand won the first Chicago Android eco-challenge hackathon on February 6, 2010. Their winning entry, developed under the supervision of computer science faculty members Konstantin Läufer and George K. Thiruvathukal, enables citizen scientists to participate in the Loyola Clean Air-Clean Water research program by recording water samples on their Android phones. Android is a Linux-based open-source operating system for mobile devices. The team is grateful to Nancy Tuchman, director of the Loyola Center for Urban Environmental Research and Policy (CUERP), and to Samuel Attoh, dean of the Graduate School, for funding this work as part of a research stimulation award to CUERP.
