Research Experiences and Mentoring in Data-Driven Discovery

This Summer REU site provides a multi-disciplinary Research Experience for rising sophomore undergraduates, offering exciting 10-week summer-based experiences in computer science/engineering laboratories, allowing for work on both fundamental and applied data-driven problems, focused on machine learning techniques, data analytics, and computational technologies. The REU site works to create a mentoring eco-system at both Northeastern University and the partnering institutions, developing a model that is transferrable to other institutions. We will leverage the MA Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC) to provide a backdrop for this cross-disciplinary REU program that will engage undergraduates in opportunities that focus on data analytics and computing. The program will also build relationships with six urban community colleges/universities to build a pipeline of students, showing students potential pathways to graduate education/research. The program will leverage the CISE REU Toolkit for pre and post program surveys, as well as for recruiting. The REU-D3 Site will work to effect changes in mentoring attitudes and practices at the host and partnering academic institutions.
