    Summer Research at Brown University- Apply Now!

    Thursday, January 16th, 2014 | Posted in Uncategorized by Lisa Piazza | No Comments »

    The following FULLY PAID UG RESEARCH projects are available at BROWN UNIVERSITY this summer.  The application deadline is the end of January and the OUR will work with interested students on their applications. 

    STUDENTS SHOULD CONTACT Dwain Pruitt in the OUR (dpruitt2@usf.edu ) .

    Computer Science:
    Developing tools and environments that make programming easier, faster and more secure while making programmers more productive.  Students should have had significant programming experience and be knowledgeable about some combination of software engineering, user interfaces, machine learning, compilers, visualization, and graphics.

    The Center for the Capture and Conversion of CO2 aims to develop new catalytic chemistries that enable CO2 to become a sustainable feedstock for large-scale commodity chemicals.

    Three strategic areas of research and innovation are being pursued that taken together support our overall vision: (1) gain new fundamental insight into the mechanisms by which metals (in molecular, supported, or bulk form) activate CO2, (2) co-develop with industrial partners new processes by which activated CO2 is incorporated into the industrial synthesis of commodity targets, and (3) co-develop with industrial and utility partners new approaches to compressing and purifying CO2 from flue gas of a combustion-based power plant to a state that is suitable for utilization as a concentrated feedstock.

    Division of Applied Mathematics:
    Research this summer will include group projects in the areas of:

    Applications, dynamical systems, and probability theory.

    Numerical approximations to partial differential equations (PDEs).

    Access to the OUR During Construction this Summer

    Monday, May 21st, 2012 | Posted in Uncategorized by Lisa Piazza | No Comments »

    This summer, the second floor of the USF Tampa Library will be transformed! A complete renovation of the southern half of the floor will add a modern open-seating study lounge to the existing Learning Commons and a 300+ seat STEM computer lab (science, technology, engineering, math) to serve USF students in their quest for academic success.

    The OUR will be open during construction.

    Visitors may access the OUR through LIB 209 (next to Tutoring and Learning Services).
