The Department of Computer Science performs research in a number of areas, including bioinformatics, graphics and visualization, networks and distributed systems, and algorithms. The department emphasizes interdisciplinary research. Current projects involve collaborations with the Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Astronomy, and Mathematics and Statistics, among others. In addition to running its own bioinformatics program, the Department of Computer Science participates in Georgia State’s Molecular Basis of Disease and Brains and Behavior programs.
Many department faculty are leading experts in their fields; they serve on panels and study sections at agencies such as NIH and NSF, on journal editorial boards, and as officers in professional societies. The department is also home to the editorial offices of four book series and two journals. Faculty members are supported by many grants from NSF, NIH, and other agencies. The department’s annual research budget exceeds one million dollars.
All four of the department's assistant professors (Dr. Raheem Beyah, Dr. Xiaojun Cao, Dr. Xiaolin Hu, and Dr. Yingshu Li) currently hold awards from the National Science Foundation’s Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program. The CAREER grant, which emphasizes high-quality research and novel education initiatives, is the most competitive and prestigious award from NSF to young faculty members in science and engineering fields. Having four active CAREER awards is a great honor for the department.
