Mission Statement

Emerging Computing Models and Technologies

The mission of teuscher.:Lab is to study, rethink, model, and design the implementation of computations in silicon and non-silicon systems. An understanding of the phenomena provides a basis for better, smarter, and more robust computing paradigms, architectures, devices, algorithms, languages, and systems for applications such as embedded systems and biomolecular engineering. We are interested in bold, visionary, and transformational solutions to complex and critical problems needed for the medium- and long-term sustainability of the technological future of all computing disciplines.

The research is needs-, problem-, and phenomena-driven, with the goal to open new application domains. We use a radical interdisciplinary approach and apply tools from computer science, computer engineering, engineering, physics, biology, complex systems science, and cognitive science to the study and the design of new computing paradigms and machines.

teuscher.:Lab is committed to serve the students and the faculty of PSU, the local community, the industry, and the scientific community worldwide. We strive to discover, disseminate, and educate to make a difference for today's and tomorrow's society that depends on increasingly pervasive and complex computers.

Mission, vision, and values of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
