Computer Science Research for Social Good

Have you ever considered getting involved with research at Tech? Better yet, use your research to change people’s lives!

Come have lunch and chat with Ph.D. students working in research at the intersections of computer science and social good! You can learn more about what it's like to research in their specific fields as well ask more about what it takes to research for a graduate/Ph.D. All majors are welcome.

When: Thursday, March 28th, 11 AM – 12 PM

Where: Skiles 170

Who: 4 Ph.D. Researchers! More information below: 

Stevie Chancellor
Her research focuses on building algorithms to understand deviant behavior on social media platforms relating to mental health. Her work is at the intersections of social computing and human computer interaction. She is a candidate for a Ph.D. in Human Centered Computing. 

Hayley Evans 
She has worked with various organizations applying an understanding of human behavior to develop actionable insights. Her research focuses on the intersections of ubiquitous computing and mental health, and she hopes to develop technology to serve marginalized groups in the mental health space. 

Michael Pettinati
His research focuses on how artificial intelligence and robots can help support human-to-human interaction. In the past, he has also worked on research that provided computational models for parts of the human visual system.

Caitlyn Seim 
She works on creating new lightweight devices that utilize haptic interaction (touch & feel) in order to assist with learning for rehabilitation. She works closely with people with cognitive or nervous system disabilities.
