Note for Prospective Students


Dear student:

If you are a masters student with a BS degree in computer science, and if you have a good motivation for research through an independent study or a MS thesis, you may be interested in one of my projects. Students who love visual arts are particularly welcome.

If you are a PhD student with a masters degree in CS, and if you are interested in information visualization, esp. if you love visual arts, you are most welcome to talk to me.

If you are looking for a networking or telecom project, I suggest you to talk to other faculty members.
