Vision: Transform science and engineering with informatics

The “Informatics Skunkworks” is a group dedicated to engaging undergraduates in research to realize the potential of informatics for science and engineering. Skunkworks participants work together in project-based research, learning critical skills in teamwork, presentation, project management, software development, and applied data science, as well as driving data-centric approaches that are transforming science and engineering. Everyone is welcome. Please join us!

Computers can now do many things we thought of as reserved for humans just a few years ago, including drive cars, answer phones, translate language, read and write articles, and beat us at Jeopardy and chess. Computers are increasingly able to work with us to intelligently perform science and engineering tasks, allowing us to accelerate discovery and technology. The Informatics Skunkworks is working to help drive this transformation!

For more information, including how to join, please contact, see our FAQs, and see our (somewhat old) presentation and flyer.
