CSE Impact


Ground-breaking research by CSE and University of Washington scientists led to papers that opened up a new area of cybersecurity research and served as a wake-up call for the automotive industry. This “dream team” of researchers has received the Golden Goose Award from the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

CSE Takes on the Ongoing Pandemic Challenge

From the onset of COVID 19, CSE faculty and students were adopting creative ways to keep classes, conferences and other meetings afloat. But after the initial rush to problem-solve, CSE faculty began assessing how the response could have gone better and bringing in additional tools, both new and old, to address future outbreaks.

Understudied Mutations Have Big Impact on Gene Expression

An international team of researchers led by computer scientists at CSE have identified 163 variable number tandem repeats (VNTRs) that actively regulate gene expression. The researchers provide new insights into this understudied mechanism, how it may drive disease and other traits and could ultimately impact patient care.

Studying Equity in Computer Science Education

CSE Teaching Professor Christine Alvarado and colleagues have received a $1.3 million National Science Foundation grant to investigate how gender, ethnicity and other factors impact people who want to study computer science.
