Jared Schmitz's love of computers began when his parents gave him an old Apple to play with at the age of 3. "I was on it forever," he said. "My parents encouraged it and that's why I'm here. I've always been interested in how stuff works and a computer is complex and hard to figure out. I guess that's why I am so interested in them."
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.
The CS department invites applications for four tenure-track assistant professor positions beginning in Fall 2014. We offer a competitive salary and start up package. Details here.
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.

Yao Liu received her Ph.D. in Computer Science from George Mason University in 2013 and a
B.S. in Computer Science from Nanjing University in 2007. Her research areas include Internet mobile streaming, multimedia computing, Internet measurement and content delivery, and cloud computing. Her recent research has mainly focused on uncovering power inefficiencies in mobile and distributed systems, with an aim to reduce the power consumption on mobile devices and improve the power-efficiency of today's distributed systems by combining large-scale measurements with big-data analysis.
