The CCDS is thrilled to announce that we have added four new affiliates for Fall 2020! Three of our faculty members are new to the Syracuse University community – Md Tariqul (Pavel) IslamJasmina Tacheva and Yang Yang. In addition, our veteran Professor, Jian Qin, who has been with SU since 1999.

All bring a range of expertise to the iSchool. We look forward to their contribution and support to further the mission of the CCDS through advancing research in the social sciences, using advanced computational approaches.

Please join us in wishing our new faculty a successful and engaging start to their future at the University during these unprecedented times.

The Center for Computational and Data Science (CCDS) is committed to advancing important and practical research in the social sciences, using advanced computational approaches. The Center builds on the iSchool’s historic strengths in Human Language Technologies, such as Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning, and the School’s current emphasis on Data Science research. CCDS researchers work to advance the science of data collection, retrieval, curation, analysis, and archiving and apply those techniques to important social problems.
