How does one solve an intricate problem when available computing resources are not enough? One looks to grid computing, which can collectively use the power of hundreds or thousands of computers to work together to seek the answer.
The Department of Computer Science (CS) invites applications for two tenure-track Assistant Professor positions beginning in September 2013. We seek candidates with specialization in embedded systems, energy-aware computing and security.The Binghamton campus is engaged in smart-energy and cyber security initiatives that involve several campus units. The faculty positions sought above are directly tied to these initiatives. Applicants must have a PhD in Computer Science or a closely related discipline by the appointment date. Strong evidence of research capabilities and commitment to teaching are essential.
Computer Science Assistant Professor, David Liu, won the NSF Career Award and joined the rank of our two existing Career awardees, Michael Lewis and Kartik Gopalan. David's research area is energy-aware programming. David is also the recipient of a recent Google faculty research award.
Imagine being born blind, and then imagine beginning to lose your hearing at the age of 5. Now imagine that you're graduating from Binghamton University and will begin working for Amazon in August.
That's a lot to think about and would likely overwhelm most people. But it hasn't verwhelmed Michael Forzano.
A computer science major from Yonkers, Forzano suffers from Norrie Disease — a rare genetic disorder that robbed him of his sight from birth and has severely limited his hearing.
