Every semester, I offer independent study opportunities to students. This provides all of us with the chance to explore areas outside of the ICS curriculum. Generally, students come to me with a subject area in mind, although sometimes I can offer some topic areas based upon current research in my lab.
Some of the topic areas in past independent studies include: sustainability, responsive web design, a video documentary of food and energy, REST architectural principles, machine learning approaches to dolphin whistle recognition, and user interfaces for software metrics.
Feel free to contact me if you are interested in independent study.
