Successfully Bridging the Diversity Gap in Computer Science


Jim Griffioen, director of UK’s Center for Computational Sciences and professor of computer science, is UK’s PI for a $1.7 million NSF grant to advance virtual laboratory infrastructure. The project will be jointly led by Dr. Griffioen and researchers at the Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.


Computer science senior Brian Luciano used his undergraduate research experience to secure a network consulting engineer position with Cisco Systems.


Nathan Jacobs, associate professor in the Department of Computer Science, collaborated with the Kentucky Geological Survey to investigate the use of machine learning to identify Kentucky sinkholes in aerial LiDAR data.


In fall 2018, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering awarded five students $5,000 fellowships through a new Undergraduate Research Fellowship program.Rosemary Alden, Even Jones, Luke Wormald, Cole Terrell and Peyton Moore received fellowships and have been working with faculty and industry on their projects.
