CS&T IN A NUTSHELL
Computational Systems and Technology (CS&T) is a world leader in computing technologies, from basic to applied, investigating a wide range of hardware and software technologies.
CS&T also plays an integral role in the following centers, which foster cross-disciplinary research:
- The USC Lockheed Martin Quantum Computation Center (QCC), a groundbreaking joint effort to explore the power of adiabatic quantum computing.
- The Secure and Robust Electronics Center (SURE), which seeks to upgrade cybersecurity by ensuring that chips are trustworthy, secure, resilient and reliable.
Current initiatives range from the well-regarded Pegasus project for automating scientific research workflows to creating tools for maximizing adaptive computing system capabilities.
CS&T research is supported by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity, Department of Energy, National Science Foundation, Office of Naval Research, Department of Defense, and Department of State, among others.
Our over 50 computing technologies researchers, research programmers and graduate students represent a wide range of disciplines, including electrical engineering, computer science, physics, math, and psychology. ISI Computational Sciences and Technology researchers are based in Arlington, Virginia, near major federal research agencies and the Department of Defense, Waltham, Massachusetts, in Boston's vibrant tech corridor, and in ISI's main campus in Marina del Rey, California.
