Faculty Research Guide

Our Faculty Research Guide (FRG) is a good starting point to see which faculty are working on some of today's most interesting research challenges.

The work we do here covers a wide range of research interests. Each faculty member has written his or her own research summary, which is available on their individual CSD directory page.

CSD PhD Blog

Visit the CSD PhD Blog for articles on some recent research being done by our doctoral students. 

Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate independent research in Computer Science is done as an Independent Study or as a Senior Thesis (which typically grows out of a prior Independent Study experience).
