My name is Ariana I attend Jimmy Carter Early College High School and will be an incoming senior and plan to graduate in 2015.I will also have the opportunity to graduate with my diploma which explains why im also a sophomore in South Texas College.My favorite sport is basketball and my team are the 2014 champions! the San Antonio Spurs.I not only love to watch basketball, but I also love to play it;Im a varsity player for my original high school.I also love to travel; my family and I have gotten the oppurtunity to travel most of the United States.I'm the 2014-2015 Vice-President of SHPE(Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers).I was honored in receiving a certificate and a gold pin in the Presidential Award for community service, i accomplished 325 community service hours.Im considering majoring in Computer Science and receive a minor in Engineering, Im here to figure what I really want to major in the future.I would love to attend A&M and become an Aggie once I graduate.

This Summer i will be working with Dr.Amato. Dr.Amato is an Unocal Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University,College Station. Her research consist of Algorithms & Applications Group and Motion Planning in the Parasol Laboratory. Dr.Amato is also a speaker for the ACM Distinguished Speakers Program.

However, not only will I be working with Dr.Amato, but my Graduate mentor will be Jory Denny he will be helping me on my sub project of Region RRT(Rapidly-Exploring Random Tree)and has been helping me better understand the topic or any other questions I might have. Jory is a PhD student which graduate with an Honors Undergraduate Research Fello with other research interest in robotic motion planning, machine learning and computer graphics.

This summer I worked on a project called RegionRRT, which allowed the user to define a region in a environment. Once the region is defined a single node will generate in the region. The node generated in the region will serve as a goal configuration while the RRT reaches that node. Once the RRT reaches the node the region will delete and continue to the next region or goal configuration.
