Computer science faculty members are leaders in their field, bringing real-world research experience into the classroom. For example, Professor Abusayeed Saifullah and Professor Zichun Zhong are the latest department faculty to receive the prestigious National Science Foundation's (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award. And, four junior faculty have received NSF CISE Research Initiation Initiative (CRII) award: Amiangshu Bosu, Marco Brocanelli, Abusayeed Saifullah, and Zichun Zhong. These are just two examples of the many ways that department faculty are having a direct impact on the future, whether developing solutions for autonomous and connected vehicles, energy efficiency, better wireless networks, or improving the health of residents of not only Detroit but also the entire world.
