Our PhD program prepares graduates for research positions in academia or industry. Research is led by our graduate faculty, who have interests in bioinformatics, machine intelligence and data analytics, networks, systems, security, parallel algorithms and computing, scientific computing, stochastic modeling, and web science and digital libraries. See the main Department of Computer Science webpage for links to each of these research groups.
