Graduate student Karlyn Beer and software engineer Wei-Ju Wu, both of the Baliga Group, pitched PoorMe.co, a public health social network. Steven Lewis, a software engineer in the Shmulevich Group, was part of team PerFit, which is an app that creates a 3D body scan so that you can virtually try on clothes online.
