Students in the BAI program conduct research projects in the final semester of their studies prior to graduation. Using video and other data, the students analyze specific features of interpreting or translation and then give a public poster presentation of their findings. The photos shown below are a few samples from the 2015 BAI student poster presentations. In addition, each of the BAI students' names and links to their projects are provided below.
