Siemens Competition Regional Finalists 2014

Congratulations to BHS senior Robert Karp and BHS junior Karthik Rao who were named regional finalists in the 2014 Siemens Competition for their team project titled, A Network Flow-Based Approach for Post-Merger Airline Hub Consolidation. Their project developed a mathematical model to predict the effect of airline mergers on individual hubs based on various economic factors, under the guidance of their mentor at Delta Airlines. They will now travel to compete at Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh on Nov. 21-22. The winner of that competition advances to the National Competition in Washington, D.C. in early December.
