Professor of Computational Media, Katherine Currie Isbister and her students use games to explore how technology can influence human's emotional experiences.

Professor Ricardo Sanfelice and his Hybrid Systems Lab work to develop Cyber Physical Systems that incorporate networks, computers, and physics applied to aerial vehicles and systems that operate in complex environments.

Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Marco Rolandi is researching the use of technological devices to mimic biological processes.

Robotics and Control Engineering is among the most interdisciplinary specialities offered at UCSC. 

 In 2000, UC Santa Cruz made history with the Human Genome Project. Today, we are focusing the power of genomics — collaboratively, openly and ethically — for the benefit of both the individual and the planet. Join us! Learn more at https://ucscgenomics.soe.ucsc.edu/.

The Institute for the Biology of Stem Cells (IBSC) at UC Santa Cruz aims to support and advance stem cell research by promoting interdisciplinary discoveries in biology, engineering, and information science to enable cures.

Dejan Milutinović and his graduate students study the control of robotic and autonomous vehicle systems, especially in the presence of uncertainty. The research is multidisciplinary, involving control theory, statistical physics, mathematics and mechanics. In the lab, they can test at a small scale, so there is no need to invest in airplanes and automobiles to test their theories.

The Center for Research in Storage Systems in a University/Industry cooperative center that is partially funded by the National Science Foundation and primarily funded by industrial partners.

Faculty and students in the BSOE Computer Engineering Department are researching and developing applications that will enable the internet to evolve and get to the next level.

The BSOE Statistics faculty is the considered one of the best applied Bayesian departments in the world. The faculty collaborate with other departments across campus to use statistical models to create real world applications from massive amounts of data.

Sri Kurniawan, Associate Professor of Computational Media and Computer Engineering, is leading her student to research and develop games and applications to help people with special needs.

Applied mathematics and statistics are disciplines devoted to the use of mathematical methods and reasoning to solve real-world problems of a scientific or decision-making nature in a wide variety of subjects, principally (but not exclusively) in engineering, medicine, the physical and biological sciences, and the social sciences.

Professor Holger Schmidt gives a tour of his labs and discusses his research in optofluidics. By working together, Schmidt and his UC Santa Cruz colleagues have discovered important biomedical applications for this technology.

Phil Berman, a veteran vaccine researcher now at the University of California, Santa Cruz, explains why he is optimistic about the prospects for an effective AIDS vaccine. Berman's lab has developed new vaccine candidates that he thinks are promising enough to consider advancing into clinical trials within the next two years.
