The faculty, staff, and students of the Department of Computer Science contribute to the worldwide research effort in Computer Science. As part of this effort, we are inventing new ways of applying computation to human problems, analyzing the effectiveness of computational techniques, and testing them in applications. Previous researchers in our department have contributed to fundamental advances in animating plant growth and motion, and current researchers are contributing in a variety of areas.
