Our faculty are actively involved in research in artificial intelligence, machine
learning, robotics, bio-informatics, image and video processing, cybersecurity, and
broadening participation in computing. Students have the opportunity to work on research
at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
We also host research experiences for K-12 teachers, provide an immersive experience
for computing teachers to understand the applications of computing in the broader
research community. The knowledge they gain is transferable to the K-12 classroom
to help inspire the next generation of computing students and professionals.
Ramie fibers for Biopolymers and Marine-Friendly Plastics
Dr. Partha Sengupta, assistant teaching professor in the School of Computing Sciences
and Computer Engineering at USM is leading a team of scientists who are part of the
Inaugural Cohort of the Mississippi V-Quad Teams - a Mississippi Energy program for
The Sengupta team’s project is titled: Ramie fibers for biopolymers and marine-friendly
plastics. Sengupta points out that during his postdoctoral research on bio-based products
in 2008 at North Dakota State University he learned about a plant named ramie that
produces the world’s strongest natural fibers.
