The computer science department at the University of Virginia attracts federal research support in excess of $6 million annually, with total external research funding of more than $7 million each year. In addition to excelling in traditional research areas within computer science, we believe that many important research challenges lie at the boundary of computer science and other disciplines. With exceptional strength in experimental systems and applied research, our researchers are blazing new trails in many areas including:
LinkLab - The Link Lab was created as part of a new initiative at UVa to create a collaborative world class center of research excellence in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). This initiative begins with over a dozen faculty drawn from multiple departments and will build upon existing strengths, such as UVa’s pioneering work in areas such as Body Sensors, Smart Buildings, Wireless Health, Bio-inspired Platforms, and Intelligent Transportation Systems.
