Doctoral students Tanya Amert and Catherine Nemitz were selected for induction into the Frank Porter Graham Graduate and Professional Student Honor Society for 2018. Amert and Nemitz were two of 21 inductees in 2018.
The Frank Porter Graham Graduate and Professional Student Honor Society was founded in 1993 to recognize “outstanding service provided to the University and community” by graduate and professional students at UNC-Chapel Hill. The society also recognizes faculty, staff, and friends of the university who have made “outstanding contributions to the development of graduate and professional education” at UNC.
Amert and Nemitz served as officers for the Computer Science Student Association during the 2017-2018 academic year. In their roles, they organized social and professional development events for their fellow computer science graduate students and represented the graduate student body at faculty meetings and department events. Amert and Nemitz also served as social coordinator and president, respectively, of the Graduate Women in Computer Science Club at UNC.
Amert and Nemitz are both members of the Real-Time Systems research group and were co-authors on a publication that earned Best Student Paper at the International Conference on Real-Time Networks and Systems (RTNS) 2017.
