Research Experiences for Undergraduates

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program supports active participation in NSF-funded research areas. REU projects involve undergraduate students in meaningful ways in ongoing research—or in projects specifically designed for the program.

Khoury research projects for undergraduate researchers:

  • Understanding Privacy Risks of Internet-of-Things Devices, David Choffnes
  • An Iterative Approach to Secure Computation, Abhi Shelat
  • Gradual Typing Across the Spectrum, Matthias Felleisen and co-principal investigator Jan Vitek
  • Structured Scientific Evidence Extraction Models and Corpora, Byron Wallace
  • Computational Methods for Argument Mining: Extraction, Aggregation, and Generation, Lu Wang
  • Principled Compiling for Linking Multi-Language Software, Amal Ahmed
  • Verified Compilers for a Multi-Language World, Amal Ahmed
  • Coordinating Human-Robot Teams in Uncertain Environments, Chris Amato
  • Automated Detection and Repair of Errors in Event-Driven Applications, Frank Tip

Students interested in participating in REU activities should contact the professors directly. Undergraduate students participating in NSF REUs must be U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, or permanent residents of the United States.

Other ways to engage

There are several different ways you can get involved with research at Khoury.

We also recommend attending Khoury Undergraduate Research Night, which takes place each fall.

Register now for this year’s event on November 4.

Open to all undergrads interested in research, the program features a panel of undergraduate students discussing their projects and experiences, followed by a poster session with PhD students presenting the latest research.
