Playing a little catch up with some CSC Lab news items.

CSC Lab is now located on the 4th floor of Sieg in a larger, renovated space and is co-located with the labs of Dr. Mark Zachry and Dr. Kate Starbird. Our combined groups are still coming up with a name for the shared lab space. Stay tuned!

Three undergraduate researchers have joined the lab to work on two different NSF-sponsored projects investigating various aspects of collaborative cyberinfrastructure development and data collection, analysis, and sharing. Welcome to Erin Sy and Saffonias Gebrehiwot of HCDE and Ya Gao (Psychology).
