Dr. Thatcher Selected for Leadership in Science Policy Institute

Dr. Matt Thatcher has been selected to be part of CRA's Computing Community Consortium (CCC) Leadership in Science Policy Institute (LiSPI). As part of its mission to develop a next generation of leaders in the computing research community, CRA’s CCC holds LiSPI to educate computing researchers on how science policy in the U.S. is formulated and how our government makes and enforces science policy. LiSPI is centered on discussions with science policy experts, current and former Hill staff, and relevant agency and Administration personnel about mechanics of the legislative process, interacting with agencies, advisory committees, and the federal case for computing.

Speaking Clearly about CyberSecurity

Dr. Csilla Farkas Dr. Farkas talks about cyber security to USC News:

"There is a demand to explain cyber security concepts in a way that is understandable to the general public," says Csilla Farkas, a computer science professor in the College of Engineering and Computing. "We can’t expect business leaders to become cyber security experts, but the experts can learn to express cyber security threats in such a way that business executives can make informed decisions."

If you are interested in cybersecurity, apply for our cybersecurity specialization or certificate and drop by the Cybersecurity club.

Alumni Profile: Irene Au

Irene Au The USC News has a profile of Irene Au, who graduated in 1994 from the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department. Our current CSE department is the result of a merger between the computer part of ECE and the Computer Science department.

She started at Netscape as an interaction designer, went on to Yahoo where she established the company’s user experience and design practice, then joined Google as head of design.

With that foundation, Au built her career as a major strategist in the Web industry. Now 20 years after graduating from Carolina, she has taken another career leap as a partner for a venture capital firm, while also purposefully finding a place of balance in her life.

Two Assistant Professor Positions Open

We invite applications for two (2) tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of assistant professor in our department. We will consider exceptional candidates in any computing research areas, but are particularly interested in candidates whose primary research expertise is in:

  1. Computer architecture, embedded systems, high-performance computing, heterogeneous computing, or VLSI Design
  2. Software engineering

Robot Assistance or Robot Invasion?

Our very own Dr. Beer is interviewed for this SC ETV Radio show about her research in the use of robots to help the elderly.

If you have an older parent living on their own, would you feel more comfortable if you had a way to monitor them and their living conditions from afar? Our next guest says she hopes to start testing just such a system soon by installing robot monitors in assisted living centers in the Midlands of South Carolina. Mike Switzer interviews Dr. Jenay Beer.
