CSE Dean’s Advisory Board welcomes three new members


The University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering Dean’s Advisory Board is happy to welcome three new members, who will bring expertise from various industries including academia, research consulting, and manufacturing.

University of Minnesota Professors Christopher Tignanelli and Ju Sun

Research Brief: Evaluating use of new AI technology in diagnosing COVID-19


University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering Assistant Professor Ju Sun is co-leading a collaborative study on an artificial intelligence technique called federated learning and how it can be implemented in real-world healthcare settings to improve patient care.

Light from supernova

Red-supergiant supernova images reveal secrets of an earlier Universe


An international research team led by the University of Minnesota Twin Cities has measured the size of a star dating back more than 11 billion years ago using images that show the evolution of the star exploding and cooling. The research could help scientists learn more about the early Universe.
