Book of Abstracts

It’s a double victory for the researcher of Bachelor of Science in Mathematics as Hannibal Paul A. Causapin won as Best Researcher and Best Presenter in the CAS 2017 Interdisciplinary Research Conference held at CAM Auditorium, April 28. 

Causapin’s study entitled "Semi-Markov Chain Modeling on Earthquake Occurrences in Selected Areas in Luzon" aimed to model earthquake occurrences in selected areas in Luzon using semi-Markov chain and focused on estimating the transition matrix, holding time mass functions and interval transition probability matrix for two defined states: region-to-region and magnitude-to magnitude. The study made a forecast of earthquake occurrences in the next five (5) years. 

Beulah T. Grevialde and Anne Julian S. Ladiana of Bachelor of Science in Biology secured the 2nd Best Researcher award with their study entitled "Phytochemical and Antibacterial Screening of the Pseudostem of Musa (BBB Group) “Saba” Against Canine Skin Pathogens". 

Another team of BS Biology researchers, Maria Arvy Diane A. Penolio and Clarisse Alyssa L. Pureza, grabbed the 3rd Best Researcher award with their research entitled "Parasitic Infection of Indian Mackerel (Rastrelliger Kanagurta) from Dalahican Port in Tayabas Bay".
