“Really our ultimate goal in doing anything that celebrates a minority is to eventually have that organization being invalidated because it’s being celebrated in the larger community,” she said.

Shaun Kane

Shaun Kane, assistant professor of computer science at the University of Colorado Boulder, has been selected as a 2016 Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow, the first CU-Boulder faculty member to receive the prestigious fellowship for work in computer science.

A few years ago, Associate Professor Rick Han attended a mobile app competition at CU-Boulder. The competition had been completely organized by students and no credit was being offered, but 10 teams had still shown up to compete.

Han immediately saw an opportunity for computer science students. While most work on an industry-sponsored project for their senior capstone, he wanted to capture the entrepreneurial spirit that already existed.

Pam Drew speaks at 2015 Alumni Awards Ceremony

Pamela Drew has a master's and a doctorate in computer science, but she came very close to being a different kind of doctor altogether.

Drew was pursuing a pre-medicine degree in math and biology at CU-Boulder when she decided to take a computer science class during her junior year. From then on, she was hooked.

Did a friend or colleague just start being overly nice to you? Beware - they might be about to betray you, a recent study says. 

As the business of wearable technology continues to boom, a new University of Colorado technology that allows for the control of electronic devices with one-handed taps, swipes and touches has been optioned to the Boulder company gaugewear Inc.

Willie Payne

Since middle school, CU-Boulder student Willie Payne has looked for ways to incorporate music composition and computer science. With dreams of composing music for video games, Payne became interested in exploring new ways of using technology. Specifically, Payne wanted to create unique musical dynamics and adaptations where the user controls sounds.
