A UW research team led by UW ECE and Physics Associate Professor Arka Majumdar has moved quantum technology development a significant step ahead, demonstrating a new kind of silicon photonic chip that could work as a solid foundation for building a quantum simulator, one with useful applications in the real world.
Data Sciences are fundamentally transforming nearly every area of engineering, science, and society. The University of Washington’s Electrical & Computer Engineering faculty are making fundamental contributions to many different areas of data sciences, including machine learning, AI, optimization, information theory, computer vision, and speech and natural language processing. Many of our data sciences faculty hold secondary appointments in applied mathematics, computer science and engineering, bioengineering, and other departments, and are active participants in cross-disciplinary institutes such as UW’s eScience Institute, the Allen Institute of Artificial Intelligence and the Bloedel Hearing Research Center.
Artificial intelligence (AI), mathematical optimization and information theory.

UW ECE Associate Professor Payman Arabshahi was recently named site director and principal investigator at the UW for this new, multi-institutional, NSF-funded Center.
Poovendran will be the UW lead for a new, multi-university institute, which is developing approaches that leverage AI to defend against cyberthreats that target the security and privacy of computer networks and their users.
UW ECE doctoral student John Ragland is finding ways to improve signal-processing and data-driven techniques for listening to ambient noise in the ocean. His work is providing more powerful tools for measuring ocean temperatures and underwater processes impacted by climate change.
A UW ECE student team, led by UW ECE Professor Denise Wilson and Dr. Gregory Valentine from the UW School of Medicine, has engineered a low-cost, highly accurate intravenous (IV) fluid monitor aimed at improving infant health outcomes around the globe.
