The courses I teach at SLIS pretty much resemble my research interests. All courses have lab sections so that students "learn by doing". Interdisciplinary team work is a must. If you are interested in the topics and you have good programming skills - apply for an independent study!

If you are a Ph.D. student working with me please consult the Advice for Ph.D. Students page. See also the list of TODOs and TODOnots and the Advise for Programmers.
Also, please atttend the SCAN meetings, the SLIS Colloquium, CS related talks in the Cognitive Science Colloquium Series, and high-end visualization talks in the Systems Research Seminar. Some talkes are recorded.
