Title Name Email Project Name Project Description Requirements
Prof. David Ebert eberd@purdue.edu Visual Analytics for Big Data This work focuses on developing new research, algorithms, and systems that turn large-scale data into usable, actionable information. We are developing interactive visual interfaces for data analytic engines to solve a variety of real world problems, ranging from efficient water usage for food production, to reducing crime in Indiana communities, to emergency response and disaster management combining video and social media data. Programming experience in two of the following: Java, Javascript, C++ and C#; introduction to algorithms course
Asst. Prof. Zubin Jacob zjacob@purdue.edu  Experimental Quantum Optics  This project deals with understanding optical properties of quantum emitters. The undergraduate student will work in the Birck Nanotechnology Center Experimental laboratory in Quantum Optics. This work can lead to novel light sources with quantum properties beyond traditional lasers. It is expected that the student will have considerable interest in daily experimental work in understanding lenses, mirrors, aligning lasers, machine-shop 3D printing etc. etc. The interested student will work with a team of motivated PhD students and post-doctoral scholars for a productive summer.
