From Legal Codes to Coding: Computer Scientists Tackle Data Privacy Law

With new internet privacy regulations demanding compliance from data systems, computer science researchers from UC Davis and UC Irvine have partnered with a UC Davis law professor to translate the regulations into technical language. The next step to protecting people's privacy is to build a system that ensures existing systems can comply.

Jonathon Schofield Receives NSF CAREER Award

Assistant Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Jonathon Schofield has been recognized with a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development, or NSF CAREER, Award for his research on engineering effective prosthetics for children born without fully formed limbs.

Eclipsing the Limitations of Solar Energy

College of Engineering researchers aim to make around-the-clock solar energy a reality with a novel thermophotovoltaic device. Paired with an optical emitter, the device converts the sun’s heat into a concentrated light spectrum that can then be transformed into usable energy.

Beneath the Surface

Oceanographer-slash-computer-scientist Maike Sonnewald discusses using artificial intelligence to build a foundation of knowledge and insight into the ocean’s role in the climate system to better predict long-range weather and help society prepare for climate change.


Technologies like ChatGPT have brought the potential of artificial intelligence into public awareness unlike ever before. In the College of Engineering, researchers show all that AI can and can be by pushing the boundaries of its foundational design and use in medicine and agriculture.
